Boylan-Haven-Mather Academy NATIONAL ALUMNI ASSOCIATION
That's why we voted in 2010 to establish a scholarship at Claflin, a prestigious academic institution of similar origins. The scholarship will serve as a "baton" to future generations from the young people who came through Mather's doors and went on to make this a better world.
We will preserve the vision of founder Sarah Babcock, and the spirit of Lula B. Bryan, Evelyn "Ma" Gittens, John Roy Harper Sr., Mary Dorn, Thelma Walker, Barbara Boultinghouse and many others who believed education is an indispensable avenue to achievement for African Americans.
The larger the endowment, the more students we will help.
