HIGH POINT, N.C., Feb. 28, 2018 – Charles “Charlie” and Mildred “Millie” Maultsby have established a scholarship with a $50,000 gift to further the success of students.
The Charles V. and Mildred P. Maultsby Endowed Scholarship will support students who demonstrate financial need and can be renewed annually. First preference will be given to students from the Piedmont Triad.
Charlie and Millie first met as children at the Methodist Home for Children in Raleigh. They grew up in the home and became teenage sweethearts. Both went on to attend High Point College with the support of scholarships. Charlie had a successful career as a controller with Lilly Industrial Coatings (now Sherwin Williams), and Millie worked at a variety of financial institutions throughout her career. The couple has two children and three grandchildren. They live at Pennybyrn at Maryfield in High Point and attend Jamestown United Methodist Church.
“As a young man growing up in an orphanage, I never dreamed that I would be able to attend college,” said Charles Maultsby. “But because of the full tuition scholarship given to me by High Point University, I was able to receive a college degree. Millie and I want to help future students attend HPU, just like someone helped us.”
