IVI-IPO Scholarship Winners

 IVI IPO Scholarship Winners

Congrats to Wallace Goode III, Pierre Anderson, Imani Sevier, Stephanie McCarty, and Morgan Payne who received college scholarships from the IVI-IPO South Chapter. The idea for a scholarship program was conceived by Marion Batey, South Chapter Chair and the scholarship selection process was led by her sister Dr. Alva Batey-Stepancic.


The event was hosted by Frances Jackson, Publisher of the Chicago Defender. Alderman Dowell was honored to be one of the scholarship award presenters along with her colleague Alderman Leslie Hairston, and actor Richard Gallion. The Batey sisters presented the Bishop Chester Batey and Elva Batey scholarship in honor of their father and mother. All of these young people start college in the fall and have serious career goals
