The Doris H. Coleman Butterfly Book Scholarship will be awarded by Mrs. Jan Murphy, daughter of the late Doris H. Coleman. Mrs. Murphy observed her mother’s affinity for butterflies that graced her flower and vegetable gardens every summer. Doris found much joy in interacting with butterflies while she was working in her gardens and while she was relaxing on her front porch. Doris was initiated to Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. at South Carolina State University. She took much pride in being a charter member of Omicron Xi Omega Chapter, and she was a Golden member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. It is preferred, but not required, for the student receiving this scholarship to attend her alma mater.
