Miss Helen Kittredge worked for much of her life in the field of foreign missions of the United Presbyterian Church. When she retired and moved to nearby Tryon, NC, Warren Wilson College became one of her interests. It was her deep love for this college that inspired the building of the Kittredge Community Arts Center. The Helen Kittredge Memorial Scholarship was established in 1997 through the bequest of the late Robert E. Wallenborn, a close friend of Miss Kittredge. Mr. Wallenborn's will stipulates that "the conditions of awarding such scholarship shall be determined by the governing body of (Warren Wilson College)."
