Henry Jensen Scholarship


“Doc” Jensen was a popular and demanding teacher whose commitment and gift for organization landed him a number of administrative positions at the Farm School. During his lengthy tenure at Warren Wilson, he not only was a teacher, but also was a member of the Executive Committee, Academic Dean (1942 – 1973), Director of the Work Program and Supervisor of the Landscaping Crew.


The Jensen Humanities building was built in his honor during the 90th Anniversary Campaign in 1974. It was under the leadership of President Arthur Bannerman and Dean Henry Jensen that the triad of Academics, Work and Service came into being at Warren Wilson College.


This scholarship is to be awarded annually with preference to a student or students of demonstrated financial need. The student or students should be of good academic and social standing. This scholarship was established in gratitude by the classes of 1953, 1954, and 1955.
