Joel B. Adams Jr. Sustainability Scholarship

At the WWC Board of Trustees fall 2011 meeting, President Sandy Pfeiffer announced that anonymous donors have established the Joel B. Adams, Jr. Sustainability Scholarship to honor the board chair. The scholarship is a tangible way to recognize Joel, who has been a dedicated leader at the College for almost 20 years and is the father of two Warren Wilson alumni.

“I have been involved in environmental issues since I was a teenager and am deeply honored that my friends want to make it possible for young people to experience some of the deep satisfaction that I have felt in this work,” Joel said. “I am truly humbled by this honor.”

Scholarship funds will be awarded to full-time undergraduate students enrolled or planning to enroll at Warren Wilson College to study Environmental Studies or a related field and who have made outstanding efforts in the field of sustainability.
