Two Shorter University students have received scholarships funded with proceeds from Shorter University’s inaugural Little Black Dress Tea.

Andrea Davis, a freshman nursing major from Rome, and Meggan Brisbay, a freshman psychology major from Grayson, each received a $750 Little Black Dress Tea Women’s Scholarship.

The scholarship program is designed to aid incoming freshmen students who are the daughters of Shorter alumni. Andrea is the daughter of Scotty and Kenitha Davis; her mother is a 1995 graduate of Shorter. Meggan is the daughter of Mark and Rebecca Brisbay and Maira DiBenetto; Mark graduated from Shorter in 2012 and Rebecca in 2010.

Shorter’s second annual Little Black Dress Tea is slated for Feb. 24, 2018, from 3 to 5 p.m. Details will be announced soon.

In addition, the university is establishing men’s scholarships with proceeds from its inaugural Shorter Golf Classic, which will be held Friday as part of Shorter’s Alumni Weekend.
