Dzigbodi Akyea Memorial Scholarship
Dzigbodi Akyea worked at Madison College for 17 years and was a cherished member of the Academic Advising Team. Dzigbodi was a long-time friend, ally, colleague and an individual with countless talents and gifts. She was a gentle person, but with the strength of many. She was the calming presence, the nucleus of the team, and had the uncanny ability to be firm while also being tender and supportive in the same breath. Dzigbodi worked and advocated tirelessly for our students; serving as their voice when they could not find their own. Donations made in her name will be dedicated to black student(s) pursuing a Liberal Arts program at Madison College either with the intent of graduating or transferring to a 4-year school for a bachelor’s degree.
