Lillian Hornsby Memorial Award
The Lillian Hornsby Memorial Award is a merit-based monetary prize of $200.00 awarded to an undergraduate Africana woman student pursuing a degree in History or related field.
In 1995, Alton Hornsby, a professor of history at Morehouse College, created the Lillie M. Newton Hornsby Award to honor his late mother. Mrs. Hornsby is remembered for her unwavering commitment to the education of her children and her community at large.
Dr. Hornsby continues his mother's example of self-sacrifice for the greater collective good through his support of this award for African-descended undergraduate women.
