The first Camille Armstrong Memorial Step Show was held in 1990. This step show 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. In October 1992, the scholarship was endowed, thus ensuring its continuation. The Camille Armstrong Memorial Scholarship Fund benefits deserving UAB undergraduate African-American students, preferably in the Political Science field.

Anyone interested in applying for the scholarship should contact the Office of Student Life at 975-9509.
