A bequest of more than $1 million from the estate of Ruth H. Huskins has established the Ruth Elizabeth McNeill Scholarship Endowment Fund at Meredith College. The bequest is in memory of Huskins’ daughter, Ruth Elizabeth McNeill, an alumna of Meredith College.
Huskins was the widow of Judge J. Frank Huskins, a Yancey County native who served on the North Carolina Supreme Court from 1968-1982 and in the North Carolina House of Representatives. A native of Caldwell County, N.C., Ruth Huskins moved to Raleigh in 1966. She passed away at age 87 in March 2010. She is survived by her son, Robert McNeill of Houston, Texas.
This scholarship at Meredith College will provide support for undergraduate students with financial need. Preference will be given to students who are residents of Caldwell, Mitchell and Yancey counties.
Scholarships in the amount of $4,000 (inflation adjusted) will be awarded to one or more students each year who demonstrate a desire for a college education and are found to be in need of financial aid.
Prospective students from Caldwell, Mitchell and Yancey counties interested in learning more about the scholarship should contact Meredith Secosky, admissions counselor, at (919) 760-8581 or email@example.com.
