Ke’Ashia Greene, a graduate and class salutatorian of Warren Central High School, has received the prestigious Frank Crump, Jr. Next Generation Scholarship. Greene will attend Mississippi State University, majoring in Biomedical Engineering with a pre-dental concentration. She aspires to establish a dental practice.

Greene excels in math and science, influenced by early exposure to STEM and participation in STEM camps. Her academic and career goals reflect her passion for helping and inspiring others.

Greene is committed to making a meaningful impact on future generations. She stated, “As a Black woman, I do not see many dentists who look like me in my area. I want to inspire little girls and boys that look like me that we can do it all. Representation matters, and I can inspire others by being that representation.” Greene credits her parents, a nurse practitioner mother and an engineer father, for inspiring her. “They set an example and showed me that with hard work, possibilities are endless,” she said.

Last years recipients were: Sha’Kyria Allen, Donald Taylor, and Aisha Williams.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Frank Crump, Jr. Educational Foundation. Since 2014, the foundation has awarded 46 scholarships totaling $31,600, thanks to generous donors. Named after educator and activist Frank Crump, Jr., the scholarship supports students pursuing STEM studies who demonstrate academic excellence, leadership, and community service. Scholarship recipients also mentor seniors in the next graduating class to help them with the college admissions process.
