Cathy Wickwire Scholarship
Cathy Wickwire Scholarship

Ms. Cathy and Pastor Jeff were always passionate about biblical education and having a school was one of their dreams. That dream came true… but Ms. Cathy passed away before she could see SUM begin. To honor her memory, the Cathy Wickwire Scholarship was established for students who attend SUM Fort Worth South.

This scholarship relieves the financial burden for students in our annual outreach, the Evangelism Conference & Outreach (ECO). Your contributions enable us to minister to our local community by bringing them the word of God through door-to-door outreach.
