$1000 Effie Solomon Memorial Scholarship

is formed “To supplement law school tuition of young women, selected by the Branch, who are of good character and shows signs of stability and sincerity.”   Lillian Solomon

In October 1965 a well-known Beaver County lawyer, Effie Solomon, passed away.  To honor her memory her family established the Effie M.
