Local Attorney Creates Scholarships to Support Non-Traditional Students
Attorney Robert H. Breakfield, devoted partner of the Winthrop community and a professor in Winthrop’s College of Business Administration, has created a new scholarship which will support non-traditional students at Winthrop.
The newly created Randolph-Williams Endowment honors his wife, Gay Randolph ’72, ’78, director of student services in in the College of Business Administration, and the late Helen Williams ’76. Breakfield created the scholarship to honor both women’s long careers of assisting non-traditional students overcome hurdles in their pursuit of higher education.
Williams, who worked in Dacus Library, anonymously supported non-traditional students throughout her career. She wanted to ensure that non-traditional students had the resources to complete a college education so that financial issues would not be one of the obstacles standing between the students and their degrees. Randolph’s career has focused on assisting students in obtaining the support they need to pursue their educations at Winthrop and has a long record of good work in Winthrop’s College of Business Administration.
Breakfield intends that the scholarship will celebrate the work of Randolph and Williams and will provide crucial funding to non-traditional students who are studying at Winthrop.
