Three students awarded first Syvia Tillman Memorial Scholarship

In retirement, Syvia Tillman of Homewood became active in the League of Women Voters and devoted nearly 20 years of her life to supporting and protecting the right to vote.

Now the Homewood-Flossmoor Area League of Women Voters has created a scholarship in her memory and selected three students to receive the $1,000 Syvia Tillman Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship was open to students who will major in political science in college, just as Tillman had.

Honorees are Emma Murphy, a Homewood-Flossmoor graduate who will attend the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign . . .
