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 established a scholarship fund to assist females of Black or African American heritage in obtaining a college education.
