Judson students receive scholarships from Whitehead Foundation of Atlanta
Sixty-four Judson College students received scholarships during the 2018-19 academic year as part of a $132,000 grant from the Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation of Atlanta.
The Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation of Atlanta was chartered in 1946 as a memorial to Lettie Pate Whitehead, generous philanthropist and accomplished businesswoman. She was the wife of Joseph B. Whitehead, one of the original bottlers of Coca-Cola. Upon his death in 1906, she assumed management of his business affairs, establishing the Whitehead Holding Company and the Whitehead Realty Company and leading the Coca-Cola Bottling Company in Atlanta. She became one of the first female directors of a major U.S. corporation when she was appointed to the board of The Coca-Cola Company in 1934, a position she held for nearly 20 years.
The Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation devotes most of its resources to the Lettie Pate Whitehead scholarship program. Mrs. Whitehead was an ardent supporter of education, and she gave generously to many educational institutions during her life. The Foundation’s scholarship program awards annual grants for the education of deserving female students at more than 200 accredited educational institutions in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. A significant number of the Foundation’s scholarship grants target education in the medical, nursing, and allied health fields.
