Meridian, Miss. Numerous women from across our area received scholarships Sunday for their achievements.
The Delta Nu Zeta chapter of the Zeta Phi Beta sorority presented the scholarships to deserving young women. All of the women honored have maintained a 3.5 GPA, as well as being very active in the community. In all, the sorority handed out nine scholarships to students.
"We are awarding eight scholarships to high school students and one to a MCC," Alberta Mosley says. "We have a special scholarship for the Marjorie Cole scholarship and that is for MCC. She was a faculty member at MCC."
In all, about $9,000 was awarded to the students in the form of scholarships for their achievements.
