Dr. Walter S. E. Hardy Scholarship Brunch
Each year we raise funds to support the Knoxville Area Urban League Minority Scholarship program, honoring Dr. Walter S. E. Hardy, one of the first African-American physician in Knoxville. We also honor Dr. Hardy by partnering with local philanthropic organizations to support the city’s “Go Green” initiative, cleaning up and planting shrubs at a park named for him, while teaching local students about science and technology. These scholarships in Dr. Hardy’s name support students pursuing degrees in the healthcare profession.
