The Amos and Edith Wallace Scholarship was founded to reward young, bright African-American students who have demonstrated exemplary commitment to service and education. The scholarship is in honor of the late Rev. Amos Wallace Jr. and his Wife of 53 years, Mrs. Edith Wallace. Both Rev. and Mrs. Wallace shared a strong devotion to people, community and education. The late Rev. Amos Wallace faithfully served the community of Kankakee IL, for over 30 years.
