Larry and Bunny Adamson Scholarship

This scholarship will create a lasting legacy for Warren Wilson students beyond the services already rendered to the college by the Adamsons. It was bequeathed by Larry Adamson, who was a part of the Warren Wilson faculty from 1960 through 1970, and Dean of Student Affairs for the last six years of his time at the College, and his late wife, Bunny, who passed away in 2008. Larry Adamson looks back at his years at Warren Wilson College fondly. “My years at the College were by far some of the most exciting and productive years of my working life. Bunny and I both felt they were the best years of our married life. We had two children when we arrived at the College and left with two more.”

The Larry and Bunny Adamson Scholarship will become effective with an initial gift from the estate. It will provide annual financial support for student tuition so that future generations will profit from the unique Warren Wilson College experience. The scholarship is awarded to a full-time undergraduate student enrolled or planning to enroll in the College with demonstrated financial need and a satisfactory academic record or promise of academic success. Adamson says neither he nor his children have the funds now to create a scholarship, but considered forming one though estate plans an ideal solution.
