The (Jeroline Laney Psychology Scholarship) has been established as an operating fund with the Virginia State University (VSU) Foundation in honor of my late grandmother.

As her second oldest grandchild, I owe my opportunity to attend VSU, in which I majored in Psychology, to “grandma.” While finances were extremely tight and there were few assets to leverage, she decided to secure a $2,000 loan for me attend college. After several denials from local banks, she tried one more time…and the morning I was scheduled to leave Ohio for Virginia State, she received a call from one bank to “come pick up her check.” From that seed money of $2000 I have obtained my Bachelors, Masters, and I am currently pursuing my Doctorate in Organizational Leadership. I owe so much in life to my grandmother’s love, guidance, and perseverance. My freshman year at VSU my grandmother suffered a massive heart attack and had to be revived twice. Thankfully the lord saw fit to have her recover and attend my graduation from VSU on May 17, 1998. My grandmother blessed our lives for another twelve years until she passed away on February 1, 2010. Had she lived thirteen more days, she would have celebrated her 80th birthday. "Grandma...it's time!"

It is in her memory that I proudly establish the Jeroline Laney Scholarship for Psychology students at Virginia State University.

100% of all proceeds collected will go to students at VSU. With your kind support, we will be able to award (4) $500 scholarships to students this August. I will provide information on scholarship recipients at the appropriate time.

Thanks in advance for your kindness!
