Everette “Buddy” Allen, a 1962 Randolph-Macon graduate, says the scholarship assistance he received contributed to his success. He says that he and his wife, Ann, wanted to offer Richmond-area students the same opportunities to attend Randolph-Macon. College officials said that $1.25 million will be used to establish a scholarship fund with preference given to Richmond city public school students, students participating in a college-preparation and mentoring program and students transferring from Richmond’s J. Sergeant Reynolds Community College.
Allen says that $1 million of his gift will create an athletic endowment fund to support the school’s Division Three sports programs. (Source)
