Mickey and Alice McConnell Scholarship

Mr. L. M. (Mickey) McConnell worked at Warren Wilson College from 1975-82 as a consultant in the development office. His greatest joy and satisfaction, however, came from his volunteer work as the College’s baseball coach. The Mickey and Alice McConnell Scholarship was established in their memory in 1993 by their son and daughter-in-law, Mike and Marilyn McConnell. The earnings from this fund go to assist a student of exceptional character; who otherwise would not be able to attend Warren Wilson College or college at all; who will take maximum advantage of the opportunity afforded by the scholarship (i.e., hard working, etc.). In the words of Mike McConnell, "My father and mother loved Warren Wilson College and were nurtured by the Warren Wilson community and by their involvement with that community. Marilyn and I are pleased to be able to give a little in return."
