  • Jackie Anderson Scholarship Fund


    Longtime Chicago civil-rights activist Jackie Anderson will be remembered in a more permanent way, after her passing Jan. 7. Her family has established a scholarship in her name at Roosevelt University. Thanks to initial donations, the $5,000 scholarship is now endowed, but donations are needed to be used toward students.

    Roosevelt University held a special place in Anderson's heart. One promise she asked Torrence ( her grandson ) to keep was to start a scholarship fund for young African-American female students to help continue their pursuit of higher education. She understood that $1,000 could be the difference between degree completion and dropping out. Therefore, a donation to the Jackie Anderson Scholarship Fund is being sought by family and friends.

  • Veronica Marcum Scholarship Fund

She remained at Methodist Hospital until she retired in 1993. In retirement, she volunteered at MD Anderson Medical Center for another twenty years.
    Mrs. Marcum passed away on January 24, 2018, two weeks before her 95th birthday.
