R. Bruce and Audrey McBratney Scholarship

Bruce McBratney was one of the first trustees of Warren Wilson after it became a four-year college. He served for twenty years (1969-89) and was chairman from 1975-81. During his tenure on the board, Warren Wilson grew from a small junior college totally dependent on the Presbyterian Church for funding to a highly respected four-year liberal arts institution. After his retirement from the board, Mr. McBratney continued his active interest in the College. Following his death in 2003 his wife, Audrey, established the Bruce and Audrey McBratney Endowed Scholarship in memory of her husband. The earnings from this endowment benefit deserving students with demonstrated financial need.
