Ruby Killian Jenkins Scholarship

Ruby Killian grew up in Blacksburg, SC and attended the Asheville Normal School for two years. Both the Asheville Normal School for girls and the Asheville Farm School for boys (which evolved into Warren Wilson College) were established by Presbyterian missionaries to serve the young people of the Southern Appalachian mountains. Ruby left the "Normal" in 1930 and went on to pursue a career in nursing. Her daughter-in-law became a member of the Warren Wilson College Church Relations Council. Because of these two ties with Warren Wilson College, Ruby Killian Jenkins came to know and love this campus. She established this scholarship 1993, in Ruby’s words, as "unrestricted, as I hope in this way you can get the greatest good from it."
