The Sidney L. Dawson Scholarship was started in 1995 for the purpose of supporting our 5th objective which tells us that we are “To inspire service in the public interest”. Over the past 30 plus years the Alumni Chapter has assisted many high school graduates in the Tucson-Sierra Vista community to accomplishing their educational goals. The heart of the Sidney L. Dawson Scholarship is to support this objective is by supporting our high school graduates who wish to matriculate to college. By providing them educational tools necessary to establish a solid foundation there first year.
The overall purpose of this program is to promote and foster the development of local high school students through vocational and academic settings. Through this program, our local chapter of the Fraternity coordinate, sponsor and implement various meaningful activities to enhance the growth, leadership skills and talent of our youth. The Kappa League program will be focused on providing mentoring, tutoring and direction through leadership. Chapter members will conduct monthly workshops with these young men to discuss topics of interest, share real-life experiences and to inspire them to establish and meet their goals in life. The program will provide both challenging and rewarding experiences, which will richly enhance the students lives. They will be encouraged to establish and pursue academic and personal goals, as well as learning to apply service principals to the community in which they live.
