The Lorene Yarbrough Perry Scholarship Fund

The Late Lorene Yarbrough Perry at a young age kept firm with her faith in God and her belief in education and pushed her family to increase their education daily and follow their dreams. While raising her nine children as a homemaker Lorene believed that a strong family base that involves the teachings of the arts and humanities will influence all youth to seek education as a necessity and not a burden.  In accordance with her beliefs the Texas Community Charities Foundation also believe in the Arts and Humanities and has placed this scholarship in her name.
