Retired teacher D'Rhea Hill has contributed $5,000 to establish a college scholarship for graduates of the Compton Unified School District. The scholarship will be $1,000 yearly to a student who has maintained better than a 3.0 grade-point average and plans to study mathematics, science or computer technology in college. The scholarship will be administered by Phi Delta Kappa, a national sorority of which Hill is a member.
Hill recently completed 27 years in education, starting for 10 years in the Willowbrook School District, which later was unified with the Compton district. Hill, a resident of Los Angeles, was a reading specialist, sixth grade teacher and mathematics resource teacher.
