Thirteen students from the Wake Forest PA Class of 2016 and 12 students from the Class of 2017, including two Emerging Leaders, were fortunate to receive scholarship awards for the 2015-2016 academic year from the Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation. A businesswoman, philanthropist, and one of the first women to serve on the Board of Directors of a major American corporation, Lettie Pate Whitehead served as director of the Coca-Cola Company for almost 20 years beginning in 1934. The foundation was chartered in 1946 by her youngest son as a memorial to his mother. The scholarship program was established to provide money for annual scholarships to educational institutions in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North and South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. The grantee institutions award scholarships based on need to women in these states. The PA Program is indebted to the Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation for its generosity to our students.
