Mamie Currie Evans attended State Normal from 1934-1936. She raised her family across the street from Fayetteville State University. Over the years she assisted more than one hundred college students at FSU by letting them live in her home for little to no cost.
The Mamie Currie Evans Scholarship was established in honor of her nine children and twenty-six grandchildren. The scholarship is awarded to needy students who are natives of Robeson County.
