THE STORY:

The Webster Family lost a very dear family member in May 2012, Kenya Javon Webster. At the young age of 32 years, Kenya passed away from a long-term illness. The family has decided to honor Kenya’s legacy by establishing a scholarship fund in her name. A McMichael High School (North Carolina) graduate, Kenya was passionate about many things, but she especially loved learning about and teaching music, youth development, and community service. The Kenya Javon Webster Memorial Scholarship will provide scholarship funds for deserving high school seniors that exemplify these three ideals.

The 4th Annual Kenya J. Webster Memorial Scholarship Was Awarded to Mr. Walter Lee Lowe, III

In May 2016, the scholarship committee awarded Mr. Lowe a $1,500 scholarship towards his education at UNC-Charlotte. Mr. Lowe was very deserving of this award!

The 3rd Annual Kenya J. Webster Memorial Scholarship Award Goes to Ms. Jocelyn Wade

In May 2015, the Kenya J. Webster Memorial Scholarship Committee awarded Jocelyn Wade with a $1500.00 scholarship to support her college education at Old Dominion University. 

Jocelyn was extremely hardworking and held a part-time job throughout her high school career all while maintaining a 4.0 GPA

She was involved in multiple volunteer efforts ranging from church (nursery and children's church), and "Juniorettes" and National Beta Club, two community-service organizations

She received and took part in many academic honors and activities: Student Body President, Students Against Drunk Driving, Chorus, Cheerleading, and others

Jocelyn's goal is to receive her BA and PhD in Music Education and begin her own non-profit to benefit underprivileged youth and expose them to many of the activities and resources that they likely wouldn't be afforded otherwise

Congratulations Jocelyn, on your many achievements and best of luck at Old Dominion! 

Congratulations to Denesha Moore!

The 2014 Kenya J. Webster Memorial Scholarship was presented to Ms. Denesha Moore on May 9, 2014. Denesha exemplified many of the ideals Kenya exhibited throughout her lifetime. Specifically, she participated in many volunteer activities ranging from being an active member at her church and the Boys and Girls Club. At the Boys and Girls Club, she worked at a youth summer camp where she helped students with their reading and math skills. She was also involved in many school-based activities: History Club, Pep Club, Interact Club, Beta Club, Honor Society, Junior Varsity Basketball and Varsity Cheerleading. Denesha graduated with nearly a 4.0 GPA and is now attending North Carolina A&T University in Greensboro, NC.

Congratulations to Sarah Willard!

On May 3, 2013, Sarah Willard, was awarded the First Kenya Javon Webster Memorial Scholarship! Because of the generous donations from friends, family, and colleagues, we were able to award Sarah with a $1,500 scholarship towards her education at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro, where she will attend this fall. While at UNC-Greensboro, Sarah plans to study elementary education and music.

The scholarship committee was thoroughly impressed with Sarah’s academic achievement, as well as her school and community involvement.

Here are just a few of Sarah’s many activities:

  • A and AB Honor Roll
  • First Place-Science Fair
  • Marching, Concert, Pep and All Country Band
  • Swim Team
  • Poetry and Art Club
  • Church Youth Group
  • Volunteer, Tutor and Babysitter

We are extremely proud of Sarah and appreciative of all of the contributions that were made in Kenya’s honor.
