Western Carolina University
Scholarship Fund 
 Amanda Roach

Amanda Roach is the first recipient of the Alumni Association Scholarship Fund.

Introduced in 2001 under the association’s then-President-elect Laura Leatherwood, the Alumni Association Scholarship Fund provides support for relatives of alumni currently attending WCU.

To date, over $100,000 has been raised and our first recipient of the scholarship has been named. The Alumni Association took on this special project as an “above and beyond” effort so as not to sacrifice other vital university initiatives that are already being supported.
