Anna was a member of the Foundation’s Scholar Selection Committee which is responsible for reviewing submitted applications, interviewing applicants, and voting on the recipients. This scholarship is named in her honor because of her zealous commitment to supporting educational opportunities for the youth in Tulsa. It will be restricted to those students who want to pursue careers in law and demonstrate a documented financial need.
The Foundation will keep Anna’s enthusiasm for education ongoing by way of assigned, tax-deductible gifts to the Anna Goodwin Benn Memorial Scholarship. Individual awards of $12,000 will support one student over four years of their undergraduate experience.
We want to honor the potential that Anna saw in the youth, but also expand and strengthen the legal profession in which she served for over two decades. Through your participation in the funding of this initiative you can join us in perpetuating her legacy.
