The Linual Cameron Memorial Scholarship is provided through an endowment
established by the Strong-Turner Alumni Chapter in memory of Linual

for 24 years. The chapter set up the endowment to recognize Cameron as a
strong supporter of African-American students at ASU, particularly those
who demonstrated strong academic achievement and leadership potential.
