About Our Scholarships

In 1998, the chapter named the four scholarships for FAMU alumni and chapter members who have made lasting contributions to the chapter and area communities.

  • David Bryant
    The late David Bryant was a charter member with 55 years of active participation at the local, regional and national levels. Dave is highly respected by his Rattler and professional peers and retains a bounty of awards for a life of meaningful contributions. Dave Bryant was a long-time government employee and retired from the National Security Agency (NSA).
  • Benjamin Canty
    The late Dr. Benjamin Canty is well remembered for his many successes with the music education and training of area youth. It is with delight that many recall the efforts Dr. Canty pursued in preparing our children to perform at annual FAMU Founders Day events.
  • Annie B. Pharr
    The late Annie B. Pharr is a chapter ICON. She is recognized and respected for undaunting efforts in the application of effective business practices regarding financial matters. Annie's presence at sponsored events is always noted and thoughts of her persistent spirit remind us to focus on the business at hand. Ms. Pharr is a retired nurse.
  • Charles Perry
    The late Dr. Perry served as president of the chapter from the beginning and for many successive years. It was through his direction that this chapter retained its focus to continue and expand to its current level of achievement.
