In 1902, twelve ladies of Houston’s elite Black society founded The Married Ladies Social, Art and Charity Club to improve the social welfare of its members and the community. Ms. Geraldine Thompson, a member of this organization and a Jack Yates 1957 Alumn, recently sold the organization’s property and wanted part of the funds to be given back to young women of Prairie View A&M, Texas Southern University and Jack Yates High School. Twenty young women of Jack Yates senior class received a $500 scholarship today.
