Background

This scholarship is named in remembrance of my grandmother, Thelma G. Hornberger. She was an intelligent, hard-working woman that wanted to attend college, but could not due to the stigma of women receiving a higher education during that era. Her daughter, my mother, was one of the first in her family to go to college. My grandmother instilled in my mother the lessons of discipline, work ethic and prioritizing receiving a good education. These values were passed down to my siblings and me and have been an integral part of the success that we've each had as proud graduates of James B. Dudley High School.

It is the purpose of this scholarship to carry on the legacy of my grandmother and aid in the higher education of a future Dudley graduate.
