The benefactor of the Asphalt Magnolias scholarship believes that women continue to be underrepresented in both numbers and at the command level of state police and highway patrol agencies after more than 40 years of women in policing. The number of women troopers, particularly at the command level, remains low in most state police and highway patrol agencies in the south. The scholarship is being made available as an opportunity for the recipient to connect with other women at the executive level and encourage future participation of their agency and other women troopers.
