About the Jackie Moss-Williams Legacy Scholarship
The Ivy Heritage Foundation/UOO Legacy Scholarship is named after Mrs. Jackie Moss-Williams, a former member of Upsilon Omega Omega and the first member to become an Ivy Beyond the Wall on January 12, 2017. Mrs. Jacqueline “Jackie” Elaine Moss-Williams was born June 18, 1939, in Lansing, Michigan. “Jackie”, as she was affectionately called by most, graduated from J. W. Sexton High School, at the age of 16. She then worked, acquired her Associates Degree from Lansing Community College in Law Enforcement. She went on and attended Western Michigan University receiving her Bachelor’s Degree with a major in Sociology and a minor in Social Work. While multitasking as a wife and mother, she began her career in Law Enforcement as “Kalamazoo’s First Black Female Officer.” She also received a Master’s Degree from Western Michigan University in Counseling and Personnel. Jackie participated in numerous national and statewide seminars and workshops, dealing with civil rights, human relations, police- community relations, juveniles, women police, corrections, and curriculum design for criminal justice education. As a “lifetime” member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., she began her many years of service with Pi Tau Omega Chapter in Southfield, Michigan, and after relocating from Windsor, Canada to South Carolina, she continued her community service work under the Upsilon Omega Omega Chapter, Irmo, SC.
