A new $1.25 million grant will establish an endowment fund enabling the College to expand its Community Fellows program, Randolph President Bradley W. Bateman announced this week. The funding is the result of gifts from the Jolley Foundation, Jolley Bruce Christman ’69, and her brother, James McDuffie “Duff” Bruce, III.
The grant will establish the Mamie Jolley Bruce ’44 Community Fellows Scholarship Program, which will provide scholarships for students with financial need as well as funding for various aspects of the program.
“We are honored to receive this special grant from Jolley, her brother Duff, and the Jolley Foundation,” said Bradley W. Bateman, president of Randolph College. “Mamie was a dedicated alumna and philanthropist and spent her life quietly giving back to her community. She loved her college and was passionate about the power of education to help alleviate inequities. As a result, she spent her life working to provide underrepresented students access to education. We cannot think of a better way to honor her and her life of service.”
