Donation to the Jerry Emmett Scholarship Fund

Jerry Emmett, star of the 2016 Democratic National Convention and founder of the DWPA, passed April 30, 2019 at 104 years old. 


She lived through the civil rights movement, the women’s liberation movement, and the women’s suffrage movement. She was born before the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which granted women the right to vote, was passed by Congress and ratified in 1920.


Born in Iowa in 1914, she moved to Arizona as a child and has lived there since, working as a public-school teacher and raising a family through nearly a century’s worth of new governors and new presidents. She dedicated her life, fiercely and fashionably, to promoting the democratic process.


In her honor, The Democrats of Yavapai County, are asking for donations towards a $1,500 annual scholarship to a young Democrat attending an accredited college or university.


We ask for your contributions in support this worthy cause.
