Two Fox Chapel Area High School 2022 graduates, Anthony Miles and Gabrielle Uku, earned the 2022 DeLaney Scholarship. Both Anthony and Gabrielle were executive board members of the Fox Chapel Area High School Black Student Union during their senior year.
The William and Susan DeLaney Scholarship fund provides support to Allegheny County African American students seeking postsecondary educational opportunities, enabling them to gain both knowledge and skills which will help them to achieve their professional goals and allow them to become productive leaders and successful businessmen and businesswomen in their communities.
William DeLaney was an African American pioneer in the auto industry. His wife, Susan, launched the scholarship to honor her husband’s legacy and passion for entrepreneurship. Among other things, Susan served as an educator in the Pittsburgh Public Schools, the Gateway School District, and on the Gateway School District School Board.
