The Hazel Scoiners Award for Future Entrepreneurs


Hazel Scoiners was born on May 19, 1930, the second child and eldest
daughter of four other siblings born to the Scoiners clan of Bellwood, Alabama.
She was reared in Florida, lived for many years in Newark, New Jersey and made
her permanent residence San Diego, California until her untimely death.

She devoted her time to rearing her children to be productive citizens.
Hazel served several years as a foster parent. she was a talented craftswoman,
seamstress, fashion consultant, cosmetologist and interior decorator, all of which
captivated residents throughout her community. In spite of the South’s Jim Crow laws,
Hazel continued to inspire others to pursue their academic and entrepreneurial goals.

Hazel succumbed to cancer in 1995, three months prior to Mother Dovetta Wilson’s death.
Admirable was the friendship between these two remarkable women! Both chose to meet
life’s challenges with faith and fortitude, an inspiration for others who, like them,
persevere in spite of tremendous odds stacked against them.

On May 19, 2012, The Board of Directors of The David & Dovetta Wilson
Scholarship Fund (DDWSF) announced the establishment of The Hazel Scoiners Award
for Future Entrepreneurs in honor of Hazel Scoiners. This award is sponsored by Burlenda and Charles Wilson,
Hazel’s daughter and son-in-law (and also DDWSF Board Secretary) to pay tribute to the legacy of this visionary woman.
