Former Apple Blossom Princess Creates Endowed Scholarship

Lucille Heydorn Digges, '55, once gave the dress she wore as Apple Blossom Princess to the library for the university's archives. This time, her gift, the Lucille Heydorn Digges Scholarship, is even greater and will help current and future Averett students for many years to come.

The scholarship, which will be awarded to a freshman, will benefit a full-time female student who is a music major or minor. Preference will be given to a student who is a resident of Virginia.

Digges, who lives in Charlottesville with her husband, is active in the UVA Medical Center Auxiliary and is a past member of the Charlottesville Symphony Board.
