CANCELLED: Observing 10th Anniversary

The First Lady’s Scholarship Celebration event set for Saturday, March 21, in the Ernest L. Knight Reception Center at 10 a.m. has been cancelled.

Since its inception 10 years ago, the activity has honored AAMU first ladies, past and present, and it has raised funds for deserving students attending Alabama A&M University who exemplify the spirit of the founder, Dr. William Hooper Councill.

The luncheon features special tributes honoring the nine First Ladies of the University: Mrs. Maria Weeden Howard Councill, Mrs. Ida Councill Buchanan, Mrs. Susan Whitfield Parker, Mrs. Anne Quick Drake, Mrs. Ethel Williams Morrison, Mrs. Beatrice Mitchell Covington, Mrs. Earlene Ovletre Henson, Mrs. Voncile Pierce Gibson and Mrs. Abbiegail Hamilton Hugine.

The First Lady’s Scholarship is open to full-time sophomores, juniors, rising seniors and graduate students with a minimum 2.5 GPA, and who are involved in community and campus activities.

During the yearly luncheon, scholarships are be awarded to undergraduate students from each of the four academic colleges of the university and a graduate student at-large.

For additional information, contact either Dr. Jeanette Jones at (256) 372-4924 or Felicia Wilson at (256) 372-5715.
