Yolanda Norton Named Dickerson Scholar

Yolanda M. Norton, a third-year Disciple PhD student in Hebrew Bible and Ancient Israel in the Graduate Department of Religion connected to the Disciples Divinity House, has been named by Higher Education and Leadership Ministries as a 2014 recipient of an Ann E. Dickerson Scholarship.

Ms. Norton is a graduate of Syracuse University and Wesley Theological Seminary, and has served as associate pastor of New Covenant Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Nashville since 2011. Her academic work focuses on "...exegetical work...that addresses the complexities of scripture and the social, political, and cultural milieu of the biblical world from the African American female perspective."

The Dickerson Scholarship Program honors Ann E. Dickerson, who was elected Vice-Moderator of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in August 1975. A faculty member of Meharry Medical College in Nashville, TN, she died in October 1975, shortly after receiving her Ph.D. from the University of Illinois. The Dickerson scholarships, awarded annually by HELM, are available to female members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) who are engaged in graduate study in religion working toward the Ph.D. degree.
