Past Scholarship Recipients

Taylor Baker received a four-year scholarship from the Washington, DC Chapter of the Southern University Alumni Federation.  She graduated from Southern University in May 2017 with a BS in Nursing.  Taylor is a Registered Nurse.

Background on Taylor Baker
Ms. Baker is from Fort Washington, Maryland. She graduated in the top 10% of her class with honors from Oxon Hill High School (Science and Technology Program) located in Oxon Hill, MD. She is a junior at Southern University, Baton Rouge (SUBR), majoring in Nursing. She finished her first semester with a 3.7 grade point average. When asked why she decided to attend Southern University, Ms. Baker writes, “I chose Southern University…because of its high-ranking Nursing program. I knew SUBR would allow me to obtain the essential foundation of knowledge I would need to excel in my career as a nurse anesthetist. In addition, I chose SUBR because they offered me placing in their notable Honors College with a partial scholarship. This made SUBR an affordable option for me and my family compared to the other colleges I was considering.”

Ms. Baker goes on and writes, “I absolutely love it here at Southern University and A&M College! The faculties are very concerned about the welfare of their students, and most importantly, they are passionate about what they are teaching in their classrooms. The student life here at SUBR is quite vivacious. Although, most of us here at Southern share the same color of skin, we are pretty diverse in our inner makeup. We conjoin to make up this beautiful melting pot of rich culture, tradition, and energy. I am so glad that I picked SUBR, my HBCU. “

The scholarship was applied directly toward her tuition. Ms. Baker said that the scholarship is “such a blessing, and thank you to all the sponsors.”

Jillian Edwards is a student at Southern University majoring in Finance.  She received a four-year scholarship from the Washington, DC Chapter of the Southern University Alumni Federation..

Past Scholarhisp Recipient Joshua Edwards, received a multi-year scholarship from the Washington, DC Chapter of the Southern University Alumni Federation. 

Mr. Edwards, a native of Fort Washington, MD, graduated cum laude from Southern University and A&M College, Baton Rouge (SUBR) in December 2013, earning his B.S. degree in Criminal Justice.

While attending Southern University Mr. Edwards was a member of the renowned Southern University “Human Jukebox” Marching Band, as well as a member of Collegiate 100 Black Men of Metro Baton Rouge.   He said, “My fondest memories of Southern come from being able to perform for the thousands of fans and alumni at the football games.  In my opinion there is no greater feeling than performing for homecoming in front of the fans and alumni and witnessing their expressions of pure excitement as we perform. Being in the band taught me so many life lessons that I am able to apply in my everyday life. The successes and failures I experienced during my time at Southern truly prepared me for life after college. I will always remember and be grateful of the faculty and staff that helped me during my matriculation.”  Mr. Edwards thanked the Chapter for all their support to include the scholarship because it enabled him to cover the cost of tuition and books.

Mr. Edwards currently  attends law school at the Southern University Law Center. 

Past Scholarship Recipient Michelle Alyce Smith-Dixon was born and raised in Washington, DC.  She is a product of DC Public Schools and a 2004 graduate of Benjamin Banneker Academic Senior High School.  While in high school she was very active in numerous activities both at school and outside of school.  Michelle was a volunteer at Meyer Elementary School, helping inner city students, as well as a volunteer at Howard University Library.  She was also president of the American Red Cross Club, an American Red Cross Blood Drive volunteer, an active member of the junior nurses at her church, and a Student Government Association representative.


Michelle has chosen Southern University as an institution of higher learning to gain independence as well as a productive change of environment.  She is a serious student who continuously focuses on her ultimate goal of being a Corporate Attorney.  Michelle is a political science major who has maintained a 3.8 GPA, while participating as an active member of the Association of Women Students, a charter member for the SU Student Alumni Association, a staff writer for the Southern Digest, and a member of the Political Science Association, where she will hold the office of Treasurer for the 2005-2006 school year. Michelle believes that choosing Southern has been one of the best decisions she has made in her life thus far and looks forward to realizing her dreams.
