The Rosa L. Poston and Jeanette B. Sherrod Scholarships provide financial assistance to deserving young African-American women who are graduating high school seniors and who will pursue post-secondary education in an accredited four-year college/university. These scholarships commemorate the achievements of two members of the Union County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. who have made major contributions to the children and families in Union County. Rosa L. Poston is a retired educator who spent over forty years teaching in the Monroe City and Union County Public Schools. She was one of the first African-American teachers to integrate the Monroe City Schools. Jeanette B. Sherrod was a retired County Extension Agent. She spent her career educating homemakers and forming 4-H clubs throughout the county.
The first scholarships were awarded in 2012 and including the scholarships awarded this year, we have awarded over $45,000.00 to female students graduating from Union County public high schools who plan to attend a four year accredited college or university.
