Mary Lou took that love to New York City,
where — on Sept. , — she was working as a

The need-based scholarship goes to deserving
students at UNC, with preference to someone from
West Virginia, Mary Lou’s home state.
“Hopefully, that student is empowered by Mary
Lou’s legacy to make the most of their education like
she did — by excelling in their profession and caring
about the world around them,” Schaefer says.
