The chapter gives out two types of scholarships:

  • The Jane Hope Lyons Scholarship is awarded by the College to a DC Area resident.
  • The Golden Girl Book Scholarships are given to incoming freshmen at our New Student Alumni picnic.

If you would like to join our efforts to support DC area students attending Spelman, please go to our Scholarship & Fundraising page to donate.


You don’t want to miss out on these exclusive t-shirts.  Support NAASC-WDC and order your shirts today.  Click here to place your order.



The area chapters of NAASC would like for you to attend our annual New Student Send Off.  Those of you who have attended in the past know just how much fun it is to reconnect with alumnae in the area; to converse with current Spelman students; and to welcome our new “freshwomen” class into the sisterhood.  Mt. Ephraim Baptist church has graciously agreed to donate the event space again this year.  So join us on August 2nd at 610 Largo Road, Upper Marlboro, MD 20774 at 3:15 p.m. (to help us set up) or 3:45 p.m. (if you’d just like to bring a dish and enjoy the festivities) . As a reminder, this is a potluck event, so please sign up to bring a dish using this link:


Thanks in advance for your help in making this another great NAASC event!

Dear Spelman Sisters,

I have enjoyed serving as your Loving Me Girls Conference Chair for the past six years.  I learned a lot and got to know many of you more closely.  I am grateful for all of the sisters who have served as committee members, facilitators, volunteers, and contributors over the years.  After six years, it is time for me to step down and pass the torch.  We need someone to take over as conference chair (or co-chairs) so that this wonderful service that the DC Metro chapter offers to the community will continue.

Although I am stepping down, I will not be disappearing so I will be available to consult with the new chair(s).  The structure is in place so it will not be necessary to reinvent the wheel.  Some of the current committee members will be returning and others are willing to use the benefit of their experience to help the new chair.

Kelly Harper, C’2012, has agreed to serve as co-chair.  We need someone to join her as co-chair.  If you are interested in serving as chair, please email me.  (I understand that interest does not equal commitment. :) )

Thank you,

Atiya Hoye

Loving Me Girls’ Conference, Chair
