The university will honor Aldridge and her deceased husband, William, by naming the Village residential facility, a complex of three buildings that house 655 students on North College Drive, for them.
Two of Aldridge’s grandchildren are HPU alumni. Aldridge was recognized by the High Point Community Foundation as Philanthropist of the Year in 2011 for her generosity in supporting a number of organizations in the greater High Point area.
“Elizabeth is a cheerleader for our community and an advocate of High Point University,” says Dr. Nido Qubein, HPU president. “We are grateful for her spirited and continued support.”
