Adolph and Dorothy L Blue Family Scholarship

This scholarship is being established in honor of Dorothy Locklear Blue and in memory of Adolph Blue. Dorothy, a 1955 graduate of UNCP, is a retired educator having worked in the Public Schools of Robeson County for 38 years. Adolph, former Assistant Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds at UNCP, retired in 1991 with 25 years of service. The Donors wish to establish this scholarship to stress the importance of education and to support students seeking degrees in the teaching profession. Education at UNCP is a family legacy established five generations ago by Dorothy’s grandfather, Anderson Locklear (Locklear Hall), and continues to this day. The recipients of the scholarship will be residents of Robeson County with a declared major in Education. Recipients must maintain the minimum University GPA and be full-time undergraduate students of demonstrated financial need in their junior or senior year of study. The award is renewable as long as funds are available.
