The St. Croix Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. has announced the recipients of its annual Rita Weber Scholarships, which are awarded annually to three St. Croix high school seniors from public, private and parochial schools who have been accepted to a college or university.

Primus, 18 years old, is an honors graduate of St. Croix Educational Complex High School. She was a member of the Future Business Leaders of America and a teacher’s aide at the Community United Method School.
