Scholarship: Kathleen & Eddie Yancey Schp

Information: The Kathleen and Eddie Yancey Endowed Scholarship Fund in Social Work was established in 2009 by Gaynor I. Yancey of McGregor, Texas in honor of her parents, Kathleen and Eddie Yancey and their lives of authentic Christian faith and service.

Kathleen Yancey was born in Nuneaton County of Warwick, England. She became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1954 and moved to Pasadena, Texas with her husband, Eddie, and their two children.
