Josh Peterson Memorial Scholarship

Joshua David Peterson was a student at Warren Wilson College in 1994 when, on his way home for the summer break, he was killed in a motorcycle accident. During his short stay here, and through his special love of music, Josh became a part of the Warren Wilson College community. Because of his love for this place, his parents felt that a fitting memorial to him would be to establish a scholarship in his memory. Through the generous gifts of the Peterson family and friends, this endowed fund became a reality. Now the earnings from this endowment go to deserving students with demonstrated financial need so that they will have the opportunity to participate in the educational experience that meant so much to Josh.
