E. M. Franklin Scholarship


In December 1993, St. James Baptist Church established a scholarship program in honor and memory of the late Rev. E. M. Franklin. The E. M. Franklin Scholarship Program was developed and perfected by the late Sister Delores Thomas, who ensured that each senior had an opportunity to excel academically. The vision of this dedicated worker stills lives on. She passed away in 2009.

This program awards scholarships to qualifying high school students who are members of St. James Baptist Church.

These scholarships awarded are for encouraging students at St. James to further their education. A maximum of seven (7) scholarships will be awarded each year.
