Allison Dickson Tri Delta
Scholarship at Southwestern
In the Spring of 2014 I endured a serious health crisis and it opened my eyes to the reality that life is short, but sweet for certain :)
I decided during my recovery that I wanted to do all I could to make a difference and pay it forward. My dream was to leave a legacy that would help generations of sisters in a chapter and at a place that is so dear to me to further their education and have the SU experience!
In the Spring of 2015, my amazing mother and I started this scholarship, and with the support and generosity of friends and strangers it became endowed! Let's not stop there - The larger the fund, the more assistance it will provide.
On the Facebook page, you'll learn more about the fund, get updates on its progress, share stories, and show how you can be involved! Please like the page and share it with your loved ones! Thank you for your support!! <3
Delta Love and Go Pirates!
