Luxapallila Daughters of the American Revolution Scholarship Information


Adylise Sherrod Grimsley Memorial Scholarship

          The Luxapallila Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution in Fayette, Alabama, held a Historical Walkathon on October 25, 2003, at 10:00 a.m. beginning at the Old Train Depot Museum.  From the Depot, the walkathon proceeded to the courthouse, the old post office (new city hall), the new post office, the library, and ended at the Civic Center.  Historical presenters were at each stop to tell the historical significance of the site. The purpose of the walkathon was to raise money for local scholarships to Bevill State Community College.      

          The Luxapallila Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution was organized on October 30, 1952, by Mrs. Alva McGriff Grimsley, Sr. Mrs. Grimsley was well-known in the community for her love of history and community service. She took a lot of pride in her ancestors and was very active in other lineage organizations such as the United Daughters of the Confederacy and the Colonial Dames.

          The new scholarship was named the Adylise Sherrod Grimsley Memorial Scholarship in honor of Mrs. Grimsley and her contributions to the Luxapallila Chapter DAR and Fayette County.  The annual scholarship to Bevill State will be awarded to a worthy senior in Fayette, Lamar, or Marion Counties.  It is the goal of the Luxapallila Chapter to raise enough money each year to award several scholarships instead of just one.
