Janice Mosby Scholarship Fund (Prosperity Connection)

Janice Mosby was a teacher and principal in the St. Louis Public Schools for more than 30 years. With a kind heart and gentle spirit, she dedicated her life to helping students in the community develop to their fullest potential. In addition to her career in education, Ms. Mosby was a founding Director of Prosperity Connection. Shortly after the creation of the organization, she passed away unexpectedly in late 2010.
