HIGH POINT, N.C., Jan. 21, 2019 – Dr. Harry “Frosty” and Catharine Wilson Culp, longtime residents of High Point and members of the High Point University family, have generously established a scholarship.
The Harry R. and Catharine W. Culp Endowed Scholarship will be given to students pursuing a career in the field of medicine, with a focus on underserved populations.
The Culp family has previously given to the HPU Fund for Extraordinary Education as well as several other scholarships at HPU. Frosty Culp currently serves on the HPU Board of Visitors.
“We believe HPU is making a significant impact in the city of High Point,” says Frosty Culp. “Catharine and I want to contribute to the university’s values of service by supporting students who serve their community.”
