Serena Robinson

My name is Serena Robinson and I in my first year University of Windsor studying music and psychology. I am honoured to have received the Glendora Watkins Scholarship and the Hilda Watkins Bursary from the Hour-A-Day Study Club. This recognition and financial support is greatly appreciated. The most rewarding part of this experience has been connecting with my family history. I’m so grateful to the ladies of the club for all their hard work fundraising and to all the donors this year who continue to support and uplift descendants of the Underground Railroad. Serena was awarded the Patricia Eleanore Alexander Memorial Scholarship

Zoé Crosby

I am a recent graduate of Walkerville High School. I am now a full time student who is attending the University of Windsor and University of Detroit Mercy to finish a degree in Architecture. After I graduate, I aspire to create designs and spaces that will leave a mark on this earth that many people can enjoy and experience! This scholarship opportunity encouraged me to seek more about my ancestry, and I learned that my grandfather and his brothers were carpenters, painters, and builders. They helped paved the way for me and my family and I want to enhance their legacy for years to come through my life’s story!
