The Doris M. Grant Scholarship is named after one of the many beacon of lights within the greater Richmond Community. Doris was a very active part of the Richmond and the Bay Area community. As a business leader and mentor for young women, she owned and operated "Name The Occasion," a gift basket business, from 1989 until her passing from cancer in 2009.
Over those years, she employed many people in the Bay Area. In her memory, we have established college scholarships for two senior year students at my high school, John F. Kennedy High School in Richmond.
This will be our third year supporting the efforts of outstanding students at Kennedy High School.
