Joseph Demond Webster Memorial Scholarship

 

$1000

 

The Joseph Demond Webster Memorial Scholarship was created in honor of the late Mr. Joseph Demond Webster to be a financial assistance to young men who have dreams and aspirations of obtaining a college education in the state of Mississippi. Demond (as affectionately called) was a devoted and wholehearted member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated, and through this devotion, commitment and passion, his manhood, brotherhood and love for others sprouted.

 

To continue his legacy, this scholarship was created to unite young men to embrace their dreams, goals and culture. Our hope is that this scholarship helps develop a heart for patriotism and honor, and that it  encourages honorable achievement in every field of human endeavor along with spiritual, social, intellectual and moral welfare.

 

If I can help somebody as I pass along, if I can cheer somebody with a word or song, if I can show somebody he’s traveling wrong, then my living will not be in vain.” - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
