Cyrus and Marian Anderson Scholarship


In 1969, Cyrus and Marian Anderson moved to Swannanoa where he became chairman of the Department of Education and Psychology at Warren Wilson College, a position he held until his retirement in 1983. Marian was a vivacious and active member of the Warren Wilson Community. She participated in festivals, theatre productions, church activities, and hosted international students until her death in 1995. This scholarship, established in loving memory of their parents by Andy and Marian’s four children, is awarded to students who intend to teach in the public school system.
