1996 Alumna of the Year - Shirley Scarbrough

Scarbrough graduated from Jefferson College with honors in 1987 with an Associate of Applied Science degree in Business Management. She continued her education at Webster University in St. Louis where she received dual Bachelor of Arts degrees, with honors, in Psychology and Business Management, as well as a Master of Arts degree in Human Resources Development. She has been employed since 1993 as Administrative Manager of the AIDS Foundation of St. Louis.

Scarbrough was inducted into the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society at Jefferson in 1986. After graduation, she joined Theta of Missouri, the Phi Theta Kappa alumni chapter, in which she has served as president, vice president, and secretary. She has also been active in Phi Theta Kappa at the state and national levels. Scarbrough was selected to the International Hall of Honor in 1989 and has conducted workshops and seminars on a number of different topics for Phi Theta Kappa. Community service is a priority for her, and she has done volunteer work for the Kidney Foundation, Missouri School for the Blind, Muscular Dystrophy Association, and the Names Project- St. Louis.

"At Jefferson College, the quest for knowledge was truly awakened in me. I was encouraged to seek higher goals for myself and I was challenged to pursue lifelong learning. I had opportunities that I would not have had and benefitted from by starting at a four-year university, and the level of education was first-rate. Jefferson College helped bring out the best in me!"
