Pauline Cobb Thrift Scholarship

Pauline Cobb Thrift graduated from the Asheville Normal and Teachers College in 1940. The school closed in 1944 and Warren Wilson College, a sister school, took charge of their alumnae activities. Mrs. Thrift established this scholarship in 2008 to provide financial assistance to undergraduate students with demonstrated financial need, with preference given to students who express a desire to enter the teaching profession.
