This scholarship fund was established in honor of Donna Bruton Ellsworth who taught in the Richardson (Texas) Independent School District for 35 years prior to her death.

WOMEN IN MINISTRY SCHOLARSHIP

This scholarship wishes to recognize that women – both lay and professional – have a great part to play in ministry. Sometimes these women may hold positions and be in the public eye; however, sometimes these women may serve faithfully – yet behind the scene. Regardless, the lady who receives this scholarship should be viewed as faithful, positive, trustworthy, consistent, diligent, and, above all, Christ-like.

ZEKE TAYLOR MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP
