The scholarship program was named after Mr. Virgil L. Elkins who had given many years of dedicated service to the chapter, and was a former chapter president. Mr. Elkins was a Farmers Home Extension Officer for many years and was a servant to his church and the community.
This program has grown tremendously over the years due to the outstanding leadership of the chairpersons, and committee members who have worked hard to provide many golden opportunities for young minds to grow and develop at Florida’s Opportunity University…FAMU!
