Vernetta Wilson Memorial Scholarship

Minneapolis-St. Paul Alumnae Chapter conducts scholarship workshops annually to educate high school students and their parents about the various ways to finance a college education. 

The Vernetta Wilson Memorial Scholarship Fund was formed in late 1987 in honor of our departed sister, Vernetta Wilson, an active member of the community whose passion in life was working with young adults. She instilled in them a sense of self-esteem and academic pride. She was fulfilling her dream of helping African American youth pursue higher education when she died suddenly of cancer on July 18, 1987. The Vernetta Wilson Memorial Scholarship is part of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Alumnae Chapter's larger commitment to provide encouragement and support to African-American students who choose higher education as their goal.
