The Wythe Woman’s Club of Hampton is sponsoring the Millie Brown Scholarship to provide financial support to a full-time or part-time student at Thomas Nelson Community College. Students applying for the scholarship must demonstrate financial need, be enrolled in a degree program or be a candidate for an A.A., A.S. or A.A.S. degree and be able to maintain a G.P.A. of 3.0 in the first semester to receive the award for the second semester.
The $1,000 scholarship is divided into two installments available to the student in the fall and spring semesters. The scholarship pays for tuition, books, fees and any additional supplies that may be required by an instructor. In addition to the eligibility requirements, students interested in applying for the Millie Brown Scholarship must complete a scholarship application form available at the College’s scholarship office and write a letter to the TNCC Educational Foundation Scholarship Committee outlining how the scholarship will assist the applicant in fulfilling their personal, educational, and career goals. The Scholarship Committee will review the applications and name the recipient.
The Wythe Woman’s Club established this scholarship in 2002 to honor Mildred (Millie) C. Brown, a life-long resident of Hampton and a Charter member of the Wythe Woman’s Club for her years of dedication and service to the General Federation of Woman’s Clubs, the Virginia Federation of Woman’s Club and the GFWC/VFWC Tidewater District. Mrs. Brown has also served the Wythe Woman’s Club in all administrative/leadership capacities. In addition, Mrs. Brown was named Peninsula Woman of the Year in 1973 for her many volunteer activities. She is a Professional Registered Parliamentarian, a past member of the Hampton Lady Lions Club, a Charter member of the Virginia Mental Health Foundation, the American Red Cross, the Hampton Memorial Baptist Church and many other civic organizations throughout the state of Virginia. Mrs. Brown was married to Mr. Norman L. Brown for more than sixty years. He passed away last year. They had two children and four grandchildren.
