The first Camille Armstrong Memorial Step Show
was held in 1990 at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. This stepshow
began as a student-driven initiative, intended to support the scholarship fund
established in memory of the late Camille Armstrong. Camille was a graduating
senior at UAB majoring in political science with a career goal of practicing
law. She was tragically killed in an automobile accident on March 11, 1986,
just weeks before receiving her degree.
Camille was involved in many student activities, a member of Delta Sigma Theta
Sorority, served as a UAB Ambassador, and was best described as “a hard
working, dedicated student.” The scholarship fund was established in 1987 to
honor the memory of Camille and to preserve the spirit of the life she shared
with us. In October 1992, the scholarship was endowed, thus ensuring its
The Camille Armstrong Memorial Scholarship
Fund benefits deserving undergraduate African-American students at the
University of Alabama at Birmingham, preferably in the Political Science field.
Anyone interested in applying for the scholarship should contact the Office of
Student Life at 205-934-8225.
