AAUW San Jose Local Scholarship proudly announces the Edie Kerr Memorial Scholarship in honor and memory of our mentor and friend. Edie had 65 years of AAUW memories. She followed her year as President of the San Jose Branch (1957-1958) by always finding new ways to be involved. In the year 2000 Edie became Chair of the Local Scholarship Blue Ribbon Committee, which has awarded more than $215,000 in scholarships to women who are entering their junior or senior year at a university. Edie inspired us, not only because of all the things she did in the name of AAUW, but because of her spirit, her lifelong commitment to improving the lives of women and girls and her dedication to working her entire life on things that improve the lives of others.
