Irene Morgan Scholarship applications due April 14

The first awards from the Irene Morgan Scholarship Fund and its Board of Directors will be made this year to 2023 graduates of Gloucester High School, in amounts of $1,200, $800 and $500.

Applications are due April 14. For information, contact Yvonne D. Ray at or 804-642-5714.

A release said the new fund celebrates and honors civil rights pioneer Irene Morgan, a Gloucester County native.

“Both warm and courageous, Morgan did not set out to become a hero,” a release stated. “Still, she became a hero on July 16, 1944, the moment she stood her ground and refused to give up her seat on a Greyhound bus headed to Baltimore, Maryland, from Gloucester, Virginia. Thurgood Marshall and other NAACP lawyers took the case to the Supreme Court. She won the landmark Supreme Court Case, Morgan v Virginia (1946). That win changed the lives and futures of many African-Americans.”

Her 110th birthday will be observed April 9, 2023.
