Julie Richardson Procter, who served as President of the Junior League of Beaumont, lost a courageous battle to ovarian cancer in April 2011. A scholarship endowment was established in her memory in 2012 for the benefit of young women in our area. Julie gave unselfishly of her time and talents during her lifetime for the betterment of others. She was an active volunteer in the Junior League as well as many other civic related organizations. While she was an accomplished attorney, Julie balanced her career with her devotion to volunteering. No volunteer job was too hard to tackle, and her optimistic attitude and dedication inspired others to enlist in worthy endeavors.
The Julie Richardson Procter Scholarship was administered by the Junior League of Beaumont until it was gifted to Lamar University in 2019. It will be awarded to an outstanding student seeking higher education who epitomize the spirit of volunteerism and giving back to our community.
