Howard and Alison Stanton Scholarship

The Stantons retired to the Swannanoa Valley in 1987 and became actively involved in Warren Wilson College. Howard served as a trustee and then as volunteer Assistant to the President in the capacity of Director of Church Relation. Alison’s volunteer work included teaching at the College on a part-time basis. When the Stantons left their church in Racine, Wisconsin, the members of their congregation decided to honor their beloved pastor and "first lady" by establishing a scholarship fund at Warren Wilson College. The earnings from this fund are designated to assist deserving international students with demonstrated financial need.
