Anderson N. Locklear Endowed Memorial Scholarship

This scholarship was established by the descendants of Anderson N. Locklear in 1990 to honor the memory of this pioneer educator (1870-1934), who served for forty-two years as a teacher and principal in the Native American schools of Robeson County. Mr. Locklear was a member of the first class of the old Normal School (later to become UNC Pembroke), where he served as a trustee for many years. Locklear Hall, which houses the Department of Art on the UNC Pembroke campus, is named in his honor. Awarded annually to a Native American student majoring in teacher education, the scholarship may be renewed as long as the recipient is in good standing.
