Louis P. Guigou Scholarship

Louis P. Guigou was involved with the Asheville Farm School (which eventually became Warren Wilson College) in its early years. He was a graduate of the school in the early 1900’s and went on to finish his education in higher institutions. He then worked under the Home Mission Board in Arizona and returned here to serve as principal and acting superintendent of the school from 1916-1919. Mrs. Florence Guigou Gwyn of North Wilkesboro, NC, established this endowed scholarship in 1995 in memory of her father and in celebration of Warren Wilson College’s Centennial Campaign. Earnings from this fund are awarded to a deserving student with demonstrated financial need.
