Alf Canon Scholarship

Dr. Canon’s last full-time position was that of president of Warren Wilson College from 1988-1991. During his short tenure here, he was known and loved for his amiable, accessible, and unpretentious manner. He truly enjoyed being around the students and knew almost everyone on a first-name basis. After he retired from the presidency of the College, he remained on the staff as director of church relations until his death in 1994. Earnings from this fund are to go to a deserving student with demonstrated financial need.
