Donor Stories: The North Family

Amy and Clint North ’79 use Trustee Matching Fund to pursue passions and meet the mental health needs of students

PhotoofNorthFamilyClint North ’79 says he uses the well-rounded education he received at Wofford every day. While that provides a good enough reason to give, parenting three sons —Ivey, Wiley ’16 and Carl ’20 — adds to the motivation.

North and his wife, Amy, saw the Trustee Matching Fund as a way to help meet a need on Wofford’s campus and make a positive impact in the lives of deserving young people. The North Family Endowed Fund was created to support the scholarship needs of students with learning differences and provide programmatic support for the college's Wellness Center.

“I have wanted to create a scholarship for some time, but was unsure of how to go about it and what I wanted to support," says North. "After seeing a need for improvement in a particular area, then hearing about the matching fund that would add ‘bang for our buck,’ my wife and I decided that the time was right to start a scholarship for an underserved part of the college population.”

Beth Wallace ’82, associate dean of students and director of the Wellness Center, is ecstatic about this commitment from the North family. "To celebrate, support and reward those students who have learning differences will mean so much. To be able to say, in the form of a scholarship, ‘We are so excited you're here, and we're investing in you because we want you to be successful,’ speaks volumes to those students who have worked so diligently to become Wofford Terriers,” she says. “The Norths are good people who saw a need.”
