Nona Mack-Haynes Scholarship

Mrs. Nona Mack-Haynes, affectionately known as “Mama Plum” was selected as the first coordinator of Summer Scholars. Mama Plum served in that capacity until her retirement in 2001. The Summer Scholars Class of 1995 alums established the Nona Mack-Haynes Scholarship with the goal of endowing the scholarship.

In 2020, Nona Mack Haynes Scholarship was added to the LSU Black Faculty & Staff Caucus Black Scholars Awards Program, which is held each spring semester, to honor students with grade point averages that range from 3.0 to 4.0. The Nona Mack Haynes Scholarship is open to all graduates of the Summer Scholar Program.
