United Way of West Tennessee recently partnered with Dr. Barbara Jones from the Weakley County Reconciliation Project (WCRP) to establish a scholarship for one African American female student seeking financial assistance to attend a four-year college or university. This fund – The Dr. Barbara Jones Educational Empowerment for Young Women Scholarship – will take effect at the beginning of the fall semester of 2023 and will be distributed by United Way on behalf of Dr. Jones in honor of the WCRP. Applicants should apply by February 15, 2023.

    I grew up in a dysfunctional family and was very confused. I did not know what a real family was supposed to be like. Because of treatment and United Way, I was able to give that opportunity to my son and the opportunity was given to me. I have been given a new life, and it’s unimaginable.
