 Evelyn Waiwaiole's Bio

Evelyn Waiwaiole joined Temple College in April of 2020 after a long stint at The University of Texas where she last served as the Executive Director of the Center for Community College Student Engagement (CCCSE). She is passionate about working alongside colleges as they create a culture of transformation. She has worked with colleges across the country, reviewing data and encouraging them to look closely for the ‘blind spots’ – that hinder student success. She has published numerous articles and contributed to several books, served as a keynote speaker, presented at every national community college conference, and been interviewed or quoted for National Public Radio, US News and World Report, and numerous higher education publications.

Evelyn earned a doctorate from The University of Texas at Austin in Higher Education Administration, a Masters in Economics from The University of Oklahoma and Bachelors in Psychology and a minor in Math from Texas A&M University. She is also a proud graduate of Taylor High School.

Her most favorite humans are her four daughters, her favorite chip is Doritos, and her favorite color is still green (Go Ducks!) ….followed by a close second…Maroon. 

General Scholarship

The NAACP Temple Branch awarded six scholarships open to all who met the academic and financial need requirements.


Roxie Mae Moore devoted most of her adult life to serving others. Mrs. Moore was active in the Temple Branch NAACP from the 1970s until her passing in 2016.

She earned the David Henderson Jr. Award, the NAACP Temple Branch Roll of Honor Award, and her Silver Life membership certificate during her involvement in the NAACP.  

Our pleasure will be to present our highest scholarship, the Roxie Mae Moore Award, to a deserving student.


A STEM scholarship is a financial award specifically designated for students pursuing education and careers in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). These scholarships aim to support individuals who show promise and dedication in these disciplines, encouraging their academic and professional growth. These scholarships play a crucial role in promoting diversity and excellence in STEM fields by providing opportunities for individuals who might face financial barriers to pursue education and careers in these high-demand and critical areas.
