Former Wilmington Mayor Provides $15,000 for CFCC Endowed Scholarship
WILMINGTON - Spence Broadhurst, former Mayor of Wilmington, gave $15,000 to the Cape Fear Community College (CFCC) Foundation to establish an endowed scholarship in honor of Louise F. McColl, outgoing Chairperson of the Board of Directors.
Spence Broadhurst, Wilmington’s mayor from 2004 to 2006, earlier made a commitment to donate his surplus campaign funds to non-profit organizations in the region. McColl’s dedication and support as Broadhurst’s campaign manager and her great dedication to the college and its students inspired his decision to name the scholarship on her behalf.
In addition to her service at CFCC, McColl is a former board member of the North Carolina Citizens for Business and Industry (NCCBI). A resident of Wilmington for most of her life, she operates the event planning and public relations company, McColl & Associates. She has served on the CFCC Foundation Board since 1998.
Endowed Scholarships can be started with a gift of $10,000, although subsequent gifts increase the scholarship’s principal. Endowed scholarships provide interest on the invested principal to students for support each year.
