Mrs. Charm’s new scholarship

2016-07-stanley-scholar

Two months in the making, it’s official now. Mr. B. and I believe it’s important to work through our sorrow by honoring his mother in ways that help others. And the scholarship is a reminder that she also needed financial assistance to finish college. We plan to add to the endowment over the next few years to make the scholarship even more valuable to its recipients. They will be journalism undergraduates chosen by the university based on their need and merit.

Debra Ann Davis Stanley, Rest In Peace

A woman of valor, who can find?

She is more precious than fine pearls.

Her husband trusts in her and so he lacks nothing.

She does him good, never harm, all the days of her life.

She perceives that her labor is rewarding, her candle burns into the night.

She reaches out to those in need, and extends her hands to the poor.

She is clothed in strength and dignity, she faces the future cheerfully.

She speaks with wisdom, the law of kindness is on her lips.

Her children rise up and bless her; her husband sings her praises.

Many daughters have done valiantly, but you exceed them all.

An adaptation of Proverbs 31 from the Hebrew.
