Hugh and Margaret Verner Scholarship

Dr. Verner served as a trustee of Warren Wilson College from 1984-1993, and served as its chair from 1988-1993. He also served on the presidential search committee that selected Dr. Doug Orr to be president. Mrs. Verner was the founder and president of the Swannanoa Valley Voice for Children organization. This group, in cooperation with Warren Wilson College, established a model child and family center on the College's campus. The Verners established this Fund to provide scholarships for students preparing for careers in education.
