Booke, Sr. to provide renewable scholarships to graduating high school seniors from the public high schools in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School system who will major in mathematics. This scholarship seeks to encourage outstanding students to pursue careers in
the mathematics field. (Note: A "mathematics degree" is intended to include the study of statistics and actuarial science, but does not include the study of accounting, computer science, or engineering.)
