The Katherine W. Montgomery Scholarship was created by Dr. Billie Jones, a former FAHPERD (now SHAPE Florida) leader and professor at Florida State University. The scholarship is named for Katherine W. Montgomery, President of FAHPERD in 1926 and professor at Florida State College for Women, now known as Florida State University.
This $1,000.00 monetary scholarship was established to recognize students who demonstrate leadership and dedication to their studies in the areas of physical education and/or health education.
