Carl A. and Bernice Marshall Scholarship

Bernice Westbrook Marshall had been orphaned at an early age. Subsequently, she was sent to the Asheville Home School (part of the Asheville Normal and Teachers College) and spent four happy years there. Mrs. Marshall had always been grateful to the people who had taken her in as an orphan and had made her education possible. She demonstrated her gratitude by establishing an endowed scholarship fund at WWC in 1973 to help financially needy students from North Carolina who would not otherwise obtain a college education. Originally, the fund was named the Feagan Memorial Scholarship in memory of her grandmother, Alice, and mother, Dora. However, she changed the name to the Carl and Bernice Marshall Scholarship at the time of her late husband’s death.
