A Louise Henry Memorial Scholarship has been established at Niagara County Community College for selected Native American students.
The scholarship is in memory of a woman who had enrolled at NCCC after retiring in her late 60s. She died recently.
She earned a degree in humanities and social sciences. While a student, she was a driving force in establishing the Native American Students Club.
She was a clan mother of the Tuscarora Community and founder of the Tuscarora 4-H Club. She also was active in several churches, and social organizations. Chief Leo Henry is her son.
Scholarship recipients will be determined by a committee of college and Tuscarora Nation representatives.
The scholarship is financed by interest earned on a $10,000 endowment from the NCCC College Association and other contributions.
