The Helen M. Butts Endowed Scholarship

Helen M. Butts was a long-time resident of Detroit, Michigan, and graduated from Wayne State University. She focused much more on her family than on her career, and, as a result, her family, relatives, neighbors, and friends had the great benefit of her love, care, concern, and influence.


When she passed away in 2013, there was a big gap in all of our lives. The Helen M. Butts Endowed Scholarship was established to help keep her memory alive. This Scholarship provides vital financial aid to students at her Alma Mater, Wayne State University. It also supports two things that she believed in so strongly: education, and the City of Detroit.
