The Phi Phi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., is committed to the development of America's youth. In addition to engaging in mentoring, education, health & wellness and economic development programs, we feel it is important to aid in developing talented young Americans in pursuit of higher education. Through gifts provided by our community donors and the contributions from members of Phi Phi Omega, we are pleased to announce the availability of the Bettye Lewis Maye Scholarship.
Bettye Lewis Maye Scholarship - $2,000
As the organizing President, Mrs. Maye was the impetus behind a signature rite-of-passage event for young, African American high school juniors and seniors -- The Alpha Pearls Cotillion. This cotillion continues to be an event of significance throughout the metropolitan Atlanta area; scholarships are provided to many of the participants. In 2006, Phi Phi Omega unanimously agreed to name one of the scholarships being awarded to a high school senior, the Bettye Lewis Maye Scholarship.
