HPU High Point University Elizabeth AldridgeHIGH POINT, N.C., Feb. 27, 2013 – Archdale resident and High Point University trustee, Elizabeth Aldridge, has committed $2 million to the university as an unrestricted gift.

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.
