Bequests for Scholarships - Meredith GalvinAlthough Meredith Galvin left the Wingate campus as a student years ago, she continues to visit and remains an active volunteer serving on the Board of Visitors and the Board of Trustees. Having grown up in Huntersville, she moved to Davidson, just six miles from her hometown and still close to the town of Wingate.
Meredith Galvin graduated from Wingate University in 1962 when it was a two-year college. She continued her education at ECU and after graduating became an elementary school teacher in Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools. Seventeen years ago she retired from teaching after 30 years.
As a retired school teacher, she knows the value in education, but also the value in a complete education beyond the classroom. "Long-lasting friendships and wonderful memories have kept me connected to the University over the years," Meredith said. "Through the Meredith Osborne Galvin Endowed Scholarship, I hope to enable future students to not only get an education, but the chance to establish lifetime friendships and memories like I did."
She continues to keep up with many of her Wingate classmates and oftentimes gets them involved in volunteering. Her strong ties with the University and her Wingate friends have truly stood the test of time. As time moves on, she continues to help Wingate students.
