Shaw receives nearly $90K donation
Posted November 4, 2011
Raleigh, N.C. — The family of the late state Sen. Vernon Malone donated $89,680 to Shaw University on Friday, officials said.
Malone, a Shaw graduate and former teacher, died in April 2009.
The funds will be used to establish the Vernon and Susan Malone Endowed Scholarship, which will offer financial support to deserving students within Shaw’s Department of Education, the university said.
"Senator Malone was a long-time supporter of Shaw and this act of generosity by his family continues that tradition,"Shaw President Dr. Dorothy Cowser Yancy said in a statement. "We are proud of our association with the Malone family and it is appropriate that we will now have a scholarship within the Department of Education that bears his and his wife's name."
