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.
