Activate Fundraising for Music Scholarship

The Rev. Mildred E. White Scholarship fund is a (501c 3) with the purpose of awarding a music scholarship to students who are in their sophmore or above year attending an accredited college/university. Currently, we have a Choral Festival that generates our funding, but would like to increase the scholarship from $500.00 to $1,000.00.

Mildred McGlotten White grew up in Whatcoat Church. She became very active in the church and over the years held many positions of leadership: Musician, Choir Leader, Lay Speaker, Lay Leader, to name a few. Beyond the local church she served as Dean of the School of Missions, Delegate to United Methodist Women's Assembly, Conference Secretary for Methodist Women and Jurisdictional Chair United Methodist Women.

Ordained in 1953 to clergy status at Tindley Temple under Bishop
Edgar A. Love. She was one of the first women to be ordained by the Delaware Conference of the United Methodist Church. She was appointed to serve the Wattsville, Virginia charge in 1959 following the death of her husband, the Rev. Cornelius B. White.
