Donor Profile - Eunice Fisher Brown


Eunice Fisher Brown always had a legacy of giving back to the community. She also had close ties to Haywood Community College and upon her death designated funds to establish the Eunice Fisher Brown Scholarship.

 “Mother was a strong advocate for community service and education,” explain her daughters, Caroline Brown Williamson and Eunice Brown Ledford. “HCC presented an opportunity for her to share her core belief that everyone had a right to education, and that knowledge provided an avenue which opened doors for people to explore career interests and to become productive citizens.”

At HCC, Brown served on the college’s Foundation Board of Directors for more than 20 years. At the time of her death, she was serving as secretary. She also served on the social committee and the scholarship committee, all of which she took very seriously. She devoted countless hours helping prepare for foundation events at HCC going above and beyond what was asked.  

“After the scholarship recognition event, she always expressed how she was thrilled HCC was helping a young mother or person who might have lost a job or overcome an obstacle to achieve an education,” her daughters say.

And now, the college will be able to provide another scholarship to continue this tradition. The Eunice Fisher Brown Scholarship is an endowed scholarship that will begin in Fall Semester 2012 awarding recipients $800 per academic year, with hopes to increase the amount awarded in the future. The focus of the scholarship is to provide funds for non-traditional students who have been out of school for at least 10 years, are over the age of 30, have a financial need, and want to make a career change.  

“HCC was important to mother because she knew that students of all ages and from all walks of life could enroll in programs where their skills, talents, and interests flourished,” her daughters explain. “And she realized students would bring their skills and knowledge back into the community.

A nurse by trade, Brown had a compassionate, nurturing spirit.  This was evident in the many volunteer capacities she held over the years. These ranged from the Red Cross and Salvation Army Advisory Board to Garden Club president, Parent Teacher Association, and many more. Even after her passing, she continues to give back to the community.
