Mollie Davis Peden Family Memorial Endowed Scholarship

Type: Endowed

Donor: Estate of Orchid Peden

Established: 1978

This scholarship was created by two gifts from the Estate of Orchid Peden.  Orchid wanted to establish it to honor her mother, Mollie Davis Peden.  Orchid also wanted to memorialize her mother's brothers and sisters:  James William Davis, Nina E. Edmiston, George Washington Davis, John S. Davis, Cora Belle Wilson, Charity Ellen Smith, Ida Modena Robinson and C. Lee Davis.

Orchid wanted to help students who were planning to go into full-time Christian service either in our homeland or abroad or students who were planning to go into the medical field as a doctor or nurse.
