Jim Millis Establishes HPU Scholarship

Posted on November 11, 2013.

HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 11, 2013 – Jim Millis Jr., a 1976 graduate of High Point University, has established a new scholarship to honor the service of former HPU faculty member Shirley Rawley, who now resides in Winston-Salem. The $300,000 fund will support the academic endeavors of qualified English majors at the university who demonstrate academic achievement and community service.

Millis has been an influential advocate of the university’s recent transformation and has, with his family, committed in excess of $10 million toward academics and student life. He currently serves on the Board of Trustees.

“From the very beginning of my tenure here, Jim Millis has been a faithful partner and a generous philanthropist. His interest in HPU is unshakable and his commitment is unwavering. We are most thankful for his support,” says HPU president Nido Qubein.

This gift benefits High Point University’s efforts to grow its scholarship pool. The university’s endowed funds are approaching $60 million in current and planned funds.
