Teaching Scholarships for Education Majors in 2016
Scholarships for Education Majors | Craigs Scholarship List
For more than a quarter-century, Zac and Dot Walker have stood among Elon's most faithful benefactors. They have endowed three scholarships for education majors and student-athletes, and also have supported numerous other important university initiatives, including the King Hussein Scholarship, Rhodes Stadium and the Ernest A. Koury, Sr. Business Center. Recently, Zac, a university trustee, and Dot made a major gift to support the construction of Alumni Field House. The university named two significant locations, the Walker Room and Terrace (a showplace space on the building's second floor overlooking Rhodes Stadium) and Zac Walker Drive (the roadway leading to the building) in the Field House to honor the Walkers' gift and the family's historical links to Elon. Zac's father, Zachary T. Walker, Jr. '30, was an Elon football star, and his uncle, D.C. "Peahead" Walker, ranks among Elon's all-time great football coaches.
