Cecil and Naomi Lee Conley Chemistry Scholarship

This scholarship documents the Donors’ wishes to support the area of study in which each of them specialized during their long and distinguished careers as faculty members. In 1963, Dr. Cecil Conley became the chairman of Pembroke State University’s (now the University of North Carolina at Pembroke) Division of Science and Mathematics. Dr. Naomi Lee, also a PSU alumna, was dean of women and assistant professor in the PSA Business Department. Because of these ties to UNCP, the fact that they met and married while on the PSU campus, and because education had been their careers, these two now retired faculty members established the scholarships in 1993. It has been their hope that these scholarships will benefit young people from the area. Candidates for The Doctors Cecil and Naomi Lee Conley Endowed Scholarship in Chemistry shall be a Robeson County resident majoring in Chemistry, maintaining a 3.0 GPA, whose financial need may be considered but should not be a determining factor. The Selection Committee shall consist of a University Committee in consultation with the Chair of the Department of Chemistry and Physics. Dr. Cecil Conley shall be invited to participate in the final selection.
