Effie M. Solomon Memorial Scholarship
In October 1965 a well-known Beaver County lawyer, Effie Solomon, passed away. To honor her memory her family established the Effie M. Solomon Memorial Scholarship to aid other Beaver County women who are training to be lawyers.
Funds began accumulating, and in 1984 the Beaver Valley Branch began awarding this scholarship to deserving Beaver County women. Since then, we have expanded by awarding this scholarship to women from Western Pennsylvania.
Elizabeth Ranger, a law student at Duquesne University is the 2018 recipient of the Effie M. Solomon Memorial Scholarship. She is in her last year of law school and plans to practice law in the Allegheny County Public Defenders Office. Currently, she is a mentor to young women.
