The Stephany Hand Biggs Scholarship Fund was created in remembrance of Attorney Stephany Hand Biggs who lost her battle with breast cancer on June 30, 2019. Mrs. Biggs was a proud graduate of North Carolina Central University for both undergrad and law school. She entered NCCU as an Honors Student, was a member of the highly recognized touring choir, a member of the Alpha Chi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc on NCCU’s campus, and President of The Law Students Association while in law school. In her law practice Stephany did a lot of non-profit, church, and real estate law (Law Office Of Stephany Hand). She also did work in the non profit sector being employed by NCCU, Mount Peace Baptist Church, and Building Together Ministries during a period when she closed her law practice for a few years. She reopened her practice and eventually closed it for good in November of 2018 to become Legal Council to the Sheriff’s Department of Durham County. Because Attorney Hand Biggs had such a giving spirit this fund will provide financial assistance to students of NCCU in each of the areas she touched while there. There will be monies offered to an incoming Freshman Honors Student, a member of the NCCU choir, a member of Alpha Chi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha, and a law student going into their second year (2L). Stephany believed “a blessing isn’t a blessing until you pass it on” and that’s what this fund will do.
