The alumni board continues to support the Quent Alcorn Memorial Scholarship in memory of our brother who passed in 2015. This spring, the scholarship trustees achieved their goal of raising a $200,000 endowment from hundreds of donors (many of them Theta Chi brothers) in just 6 years. The scholarship now has the ability to award $10,000 each year in perpetuity to a deserving undergraduate student who best exemplifies Quent. Thanks to all who have supported the scholarship over the years!

This past April, the scholarship was awarded to Alexis Foster, a rising third-year Comm School student from Chesapeake, Virginia. Alexis serves as Treasurer and Fundraising Committee Co-Chair for Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, and as Vice-Chair for the Financial Accessibility Committee in UVA’s Student Council.
