Betty Brown Scholarship



Mrs. Betty Brown was a beloved teacher and school administrator for 35 years. She spent 30 of those years working in the Tucson Unified School District in Tucson, Arizona. Upon her death in September 2000, her sorority renamed its scholarship fund in her honor.  Scholarship recipients are females of Black or African American heritage.

Mrs. Brown left a legacy of high academic standards, commitment to community service, and a love of humanity. To honor her legacy, the Tucson Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. offers scholarships to graduating high school seniors with a passion for learning, a determination to succeed, and an eagerness to earn a college degree.
