Thomas E. Whiteman Scholarship

At meetings of the Presbyterian Board of National Missions, Thomas Whiteman met President Arthur M. Bannerman, who came to seek funding for the support of Warren Wilson Junior College. Mr. Whiteman gave the commencement address at Warren Wilson in 1949. Mr. Whiteman and Dr. Bannerman became good friends, and their friendship continued until Mr. Whiteman's death in 1976. When Mrs. Whiteman died in 1970, she bequeathed money to the College to build the Maud Whiteman House and to establish a scholarship. The Thomas E. Whiteman Scholarship is to support the education of a deserving entering or continuing student.
