Our pledge is only the beginning. We hope you will join us as we work to transform our chapter to be more equitable and inclusive.
We are proud to announce the AIA San Antonio Diversity Scholarship Endowment
in Memory of Norcell D. Haywood, AIA
This permanent endowment will provide annual scholarships to minorities seeking an architectural education at an accredited Texas university. Norcell Haywood was a pioneer – the first licensed African American architect in San Antonio, and the second African American architecture graduate from the University of Texas at Austin’s School of Architecture. In Norcell’s words, “[minority architects] should be able to beneficially serve their profession and community at the same time without having to serve one at the expense of the other”. AIA San Antonio is proud to honor his legacy as a community architect and advocate for minority communities.
