Katie Dean Scholarship

Katie Dean was a member of the Second Presbyterian Church in Knoxville, Tennessee, where she met the Wilks sisters. These ladies were friends of Warren Wilson College and especially with the long-time registrar of the school. It was through them that Mrs. Dean came to know and believe in the mission of the College. As far as we know, Mrs. Dean never visited the campus. She left a gift to the college through her will and the college endowed a scholarship in her memory. The earnings from this endowment go to help deserving students with demonstrated financial need.
