Janice M. Scott Memorial Scholarship Fund

History of the Janice M. Scott Memorial Scholarship Fund

The establishment of the Janice M. Scott Memorial Scholarship Fund occurred in October 2001. This scholarship fund is named in honor of Janice Marie Scott. Why was this scholarship fund established? To recognize her involvement with various youth programs and community service activities within the Greater Metropolitan Area of Washington, DC. Janice was one of 125 individuals that perished in the Pentagon on September 11, 2001 when terrorists hijacked and crashed American Airlines Flight 77 into the building of the Pentagon. She was the daughter of Geraldine Holmes of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Janice was born in Memphis, Tennessee on October 12, 1954. Shortly after her birth, Janice moved with her family from Memphis to Milwaukee. She attended public school in Milwaukee until her mid-teen years. During the late 1960’s, she and most of her family moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado where one of her older sisters was assigned as a soldier to Fort Carson near the city of Colorado Springs. She graduated in 1972 from Harrison High School. Her sister was reassigned to a military installation in West Germany soon after she graduated from high school. Janice then took on the task of caring for her younger sister and the daughter of the sister who went to West Germany. She assumed this task in conjunction with taking classes at a business college and working on Fort Carson.

In 1975, Janice met 2nd Lieutenant Abraham Scott. He was assigned to the Finance Office on Fort Carson. After a brief engagement, Abraham and Janice traveled to his hometown of Beaufort, South Carolina and they were married by his father. They were blessed with two daughters, Crystal Marie and Angel Marie. In 1988, Janice earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from the adult school of the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland. She was a member of five organizations: Blacks-In-Government; Burke/Fairfax Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated; American Society of Military Comptrollers; the Association of Government Accountants; and the 5-Star Toastmasters Club. She was also a member of Greater Little Zion Baptist Church in Fairfax, Virginia.
