Our Mission

The Melvia Wright Patten Scholarship Fund gives students a chance at a dream of attending college in honor of a phenomenal woman.

Established in 1996, each year the Scholarship Fund awards five students who are attending an institution of higher learning $1,000 to assist with their education.


The Melvia Wright Patten Scholarship was established in her honor to ensure that her belief in the importance of education is carried on.
