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.
The Class of 2013 and Chaplain Stacy Pardue are working together to support orphanages in Kenya and Ghana. The effort, known as Sisters United, was inspired by the 2010 Summer Reading Book, “Half the Sky,” by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. more
