April E. Ogden & Margaret Gaskin Scholarship

“April E. Ogden”


April E. Ogden

April E. Ogden

Scholarship for women or men who reside in Chicago, IL or CT.  April E. Ogden, Thea’s mother, was a very selfless and kind woman who put her loved ones before herself. She dropped out of Englewood High school due to pregnancy; however she did go on to get her GED and planned to attend college before she unexpectedly passed away in the 80s. Her GED actually arrived right after she passed away. We are creating this scholarship in her memory as we know she loved helping others and believed in education as well.
