THE SAN ANTONIO CHAPTER, INCORPORATED was formally established on December 10, 1960 and is dedicated to providing educational, financial, and vocational programs to the San Antonio community. Several achievements include providing over $80,000 in scholarships to high school seniors, adopting classrooms at both Gates and Carroll Elementary Schools, mentoring students at Sam Houston High School, providing seminars, exposing children to the diverse cultures of our community such as visits to art galleries, mock court, the Arts, exploring diverse cultures, and first-hand opportunities to visit and explore community services. One of our community service endeavors was Project S.O.S. “Save Our Sisters,” a women’s health initiative. Another is SWAT which garnered a $2,000 award for an outstanding STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) project. Lastly, we successfully finished a year with a "finishing school" project in which middle school girls were exposed to culture, finance and careers, dining etiquette, and more. read more
The San Antonio Chapter of Links culminated its fiftieth anniversary celebration with a program formally presenting to St. Philip’s College a $25,000 endowment for scholarship. St. Philip’s College, founded in 1898, is one of the oldest community colleges in the nation. It is the only college to be federally designated as both a historically Black college and a Hispanic-serving institution.
The highlight of the ceremony was truly the presentation by San Antonio Link President Rosaland Anderson to St. Phillip’s president, Dr. Adena William Loston. Dr. Loston acknowledged the contribution and commitment of the Links to the San Antonio community and expressed her gratitude on behalf of the students of St. Phillips who would benefit from the generosity of the Links.
Funds for the scholarship endowment were a result of a brunch celebrating fifty years hosted by the San Antonio Chapter of the Links celebrating friendship and service featuring nationally renowned CNN news contributor, Roland Martin.
