  Detroit Alumni Donate $25,000 for Scholarship


The Greater Detroit Michigan Alumni of Delaware State University have donated $25,000 to the DSU Foundation.

The donation establishes the Greater Detroit Michigan Alumni Scholarship, which will provide an annual $5,000 to full-time DSU students in need, with out-of-state students from Detroit given priority.

Representing the Detroit alumni, Woodrow Hayward, class of 1964, and Loretta Washington, class of 1978, presented the check to DSU President Harry L. Williams on May 10.

In addition to the efforts of Mr. Hayward, Ms. Washington and other Detroit-area DSU alumni,  the late Colene Pearson, Esq., class of 1971, is also credited for being a driving force in the creation of the fund.
