WHO WE SERVE

Scholarship Funds are administered by affiliate organizations and volunteers in each county of Arkansas. Eligibility criteria and application requirements vary by county.

SEPTEMBER VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH

Veronda Tatum, SPSF of Union County

Veronda Tatum has served the SPSF of Union County in many capacities since 2004 when she first volunteered. An avid grant writer, Veronda has secured funding to help sustain her local SPSF. She has served as President of the ASPSF Board of Directors, along with several other roles (2004-2011). A committed volunteer in her community, Veronda enjoys working with the BancorpSouth Community Advisory Council, Sweet Home Church, and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority. She was born in the small town of Smackover, Arkansas, where her mother pushed Veronda and her sister to succeed. A 3rd generation single mother, Veronda received both her Bachelors and Masters degrees from SAU. As the Director of Financial Aid at SouthArk, she now encourages others to complete their degrees. Her son, Trey, is walking his own path to success by pursuing a degree in Criminal Justice at SAU. Veronda is an excellent example of how one family can break the cycle of poverty with encouragement, determination and an education.
