The Norfolk (VA) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated Kathryn B. Bibbins Scholarship

In June 2011, the Norfolk (VA) Chapter of Links, Incorporated saluted Link Kathryn Brown Bibbins, sole surviving Charter Member as the Chapter recently celebrated 60 years of service and friendship to the Norfolk Community.  

Link Kathryn was born on August 3, 1907; she was a lifelong Norfolk resident for 106 years.  Link Kathryn graduated from Booker T. Washington High School and Hampton Institute.  She taught school in Norfolk, while teaching at Booker T. Jr. High School in 1936; she married and had to leave the school system.  Later she was able to return to teaching and was appointed principal of Lindenwood Elementary School where she retired in 1970.

Immediately following the chartering, Norfolk Links began setting their agenda to focus upon Services to Youth in the African-American community. One of their first projects was to assist in providing enrichment experiences for the Quest Club, academically gifted students at Jacox Junior High School.  A $1,000.00 Memorial Scholarship was established to assist a worthy female student to pursue higher education at a school of her choice. The Norfolk (VA) Chapter of Links continues to build on the foundation of our founding Link Sisters.

Since June 2006,  the chapter awards a $4000 scholarship ($1,000 per year) to a deserving young lady to an institution of higher learning of her choice. (Excerpts from New Journal and Guide, online article: March 21, 2012.)
