We would like to thank Dr. Monette Weaver Wood. Earlier this year, she established the Elvira Worth Foust Plonk, Class of 1908, Endowed Scholarship in Education with a gift of $30,000. This fund is in honor of her maternal grandmother, Elvira Worth Foust Plonk. Elvira is also a relative of Chancelor Julius Foust. This is a new pledge for $20,000 to be added to the fund and is a gift in honor of Monette’s upcoming 50th Class Reunion.
An additional contribution of $49,513.81 from the estate of Willie Ellen Trexler, ’40 has been contributed to the Willie Ellen Trexler, Class of 1940, Scholarship in Education. This fund is for training and education of prospective teachers who plan to teach in North Carolina.
