Founder, The Uriah and Estella Thompson Scholarship
This scholarship was created by former Indiana University Southeast students Jeremy Campbell, Pharm.D. and Cha’Reme Vincent. The entire Campbell family has been instrumental in creating a scholarship for minority students in memory of their parents and grandparents, Uriah and Estella Thompson.
Mr. and Mrs. Thompson saw the value in a college education, as they came from a generation when they were not afforded the right to do so. The Thompsons were active in their community and instilled the importance of family and increasing knowledge throughout the duration of their lives. Scholarships have been a great benefit for Jeremy and Cha’Reme, who both depended on financial aid and scholarships to aid them during their undergraduate and graduate/professional years.
It is the Campbell Family’s hope that students apply, not for the simple reason of paying for classes or books; but it is their wish that they apply with a spirit of determination, passion and drive to continue their college education. The family feels compassionate about minority students who dare to dream and see their goals come to fruition.
Jeremy Campbell, Pharm.D. is a former IU Southeast student who attended for three years before being accepted into Purdue University College of Pharmacy. Cha’Reme is also a former student who received her B.A. of Sociology in 2005 and is currently a student at the Raymond A. Kent School of Social Work completing a Master of Science in Social Work and Alcohol and Drug Counseling. The couple currently resides in Louisville, KY.
