About Lena Anne Gordon '57:

Lena Anne Gordon '57 has spent her life and career dedicated to the promotion of learning as a lifelong process. Ms. Gordon understood what it was like to balance the demands of a working student, as she attended Woman's College on a scholarship and worked 20 hours a week in the dining hall during her time there. Because of this, she didn't have as much time to be involved in anything outside of her school work. However, in the time since, she has become an extremely active member of her community, working to promote enrichment and education for learners of all ages.

Ms. Gordon's experience with and affection for UNCG, along with her passion for the promotion of educational experiences, form the motivation for the establishment of this scholarship. "My reason for creating this scholarship is to give a student an opportunity for an education," she said.
