Anna Scott Brown Scholarship Endowment
The Anna Scott Brown Scholarship Endowment was established through a bequest in Mrs. Brown's Last Will and Testament. Mrs. Brown indicated her desires through her will to honor Tennessee Technological University's Nursing School through student scholarships.
Mrs. Brown was born in White County, TN, in 1905. She was married to Arthur (A.D.) Brown. For most of their lives, they owned and operated Modern Dry Cleaners in Sparta. Upon retirement, the couple moved to their family farm and raised cattle and Airedale Terriers. Even after her husband's death in the mid-1970s, Mrs. Brown continued to live on this farm, where she passed away in December of 1995. Though she never attended the University, Mrs. Brown desired to benefit the medical profession by establishing scholarships for student nurses at Tennessee Tech.
