Diana Meachem Jones graduated with the "Mighty and Great" Class of 78. She was a great representative of Lincoln University where ever she was in the world.
This book scholarship in her honor would have brought out that giant smile of hers (you could never forget) and help LU students. So in honor of brining out that big Diana smile let's contribute big and make this scholarship an enormous success in her memory and to many LU students.
The Revive the Pride: Millennial Endowed Scholarship Fund is a rallying cry from alumni of the Millennial Classes of Lincoln University (Classes of 2000 - 2018) to all our fellow alumni and friends of Lincoln to join together in a singular effort to give back to our "Dear Ole Orange and Blue" and empower qualified students to further their education!
All funds raised will help to raise the University's endowment and will be utilized for scholarships to students with a 3.0 GPA or higher who demonstrate financial need.
Ernest (Ernie) Holiday, beloved member of the Class of '79, was a proud and devoted Lincoln Alumnus who found his passion in educating and providing services to our youth. At the 2019 Alumni Awards Banquet Ernest was posthumously awarded the Public Service Award.
In honor of their loving husband and father, the Holiday Family established this scholarship to provide financial assistance for African-American males from disadvantaged backgrounds who reside in the City of Philadelphia and have the desire to attend college but lack the financial means to do such.
The Family welcomes all who knew Ernie and believe in the potential of our youth to support their goal to fully endow this scholarship.
