The Helen Lee Gentry Scholarship Fund recognizes and honors African-American students that live a Christian lifestyle, exemplify academic excellence, and contribute to our community. In the past two years we have awarded $5,000 in college scholarships to six very deserving students who attend prestigious colleges such as Tuskegee Institute, Duke University, Spelman College, Ohio State University, Wellesley College and Wittenberg University.
Above all else, Helen Lee Gentry valued her personal relationship with God, often saying, "I am about my Father's business" as she ventured into her various missionary activities. A devout Christian for over 40 years at Mt. Zion Baptist Church and Southern Baptist Church, Helen understood the importance of education, the power of prayer and the need to read God's word, but most importantly, she lived her life in accordance with God's will.

The non-profit Helen Lee Gentry Scholarship Fund is committed to this legacy. Previous scholarship recipients exemplify the principles that shaped Helen Lee Gentry's life. We know there are many, many more students that live their lives in accordance with these principles and would benefit from a college scholarship. The Helen Lee Gentry Scholarship Fund reinforces the importance of spiritual maturity, academic excellence, and community involvement. Scholarship recipients serve as a benchmark of excellence for their peers and the community at large. Please help us continue her legacy with your tax deductible donation.
