Jacquelyn B. Williams Memorial Scholarship
Tokyo Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
The JBW Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually to students throughout the Kanto Plain. The scholarship is part of TACs effort to promote human welfare by investing in the future of young men and women who have the potential to become the future leaders of our society; leaders in the fields of education, politics, the arts, civil and human rights.
Jacquelyn B. Williams was initiated into our illustrious Sorority in the spring of 1963 at Kansas State College of Pittsburg, Kansas. Throughout her lifetime, she maintained membership in many chapters and became an active member of the Tokyo Alumnae Chapter in 2001. During her membership in our Chapter, she served as Chaplain. She lived her life as an educator/director in public, private and post secondary academia for 30 years. She was a licensed minister and missionary in Africa. During Jackie's last days, she was employed as the Director of the Ikego Child Development Center in Yokosuka, Japan. It is for her beauty of spirit, dedication to high values, loyalty to the Sorority and service to others for which this scholarship is named in her honor.
