ACFA Helen Brothers/Beth Harris Memorial Scholarship
The ACFA Board of Directors established the ACFA – HELEN BROTHERS MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP to be awarded on an annual basis beginning with the year 2005 and each year thereafter to a qualified applicant who is affiliated with the Alabama Consumer Finance Association as an employee of a Regular or Associate Member company, or who is a child or grandchild of an employee of a Regular or Associate Member company. In 2012, the Board has approved the additional award of the BETH HARRIS MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP to honor the late wife of ACFA Vice-President Richard Harris. The board then officially changed the name to the HB/BH Memorial Scholarship.
The ACFA Helen Brothers/Beth Harris Memorial Scholarship is in honor of two wonderful ladies; Mrs. Helen Brothers and Mrs. Beth Harris. Helen is the deceased wife of ACFA's first President, Glenn Brothers. Helen was a very outgoing lady. She delighted in young people and was always a mentor for those trying to achieve their very best. Beth is the deceased wife of Richard Harris, our ACFA Vice President and a member of our Board of Directors. Beth had a dynamic personality, she loved her grandchildren and wanted all young people should have a good education. Both of them personified the type of folks who make up our Association.
