Dr. Lester W. Butts Scholarship Program
The Dr. Lester W. Butts Scholarship was established by the Metro Atlanta Chapter SSUNAA in 2001. Dr. Butts was a 1949 graduate of Savannah State University, the second president of the Metro Atlanta SSUNAA, the first principal of Douglass High School (Atlanta school system), and the Superintendent of Atlanta City Schools in 1990. He served in the Metro Atlanta Chapter from the 1960’s until his death in 1999. Since the chapter's inception, we have awarded scholarships to more than 150 students from the metro Atlanta area.
