VanceA new endowed scholarship established at Catawba College memorializes Anna Katherine Gregory Vance, a 2003 alumna who died in April 2011. The Scholarship was established by her husband, Dr. Shawn L. Vance of Kannapolis.

Preference for the scholarship will be given to female, Christian students who major or minor in political science or dance. Anna majored in political science and minored in dance at Catawba. In 2001, she was also one of the co-founders of the Delphinian Society at Catawba, a campus organization dedicated to providing academic, service and social opportunities for females.

Born in Greenville, S.C., she was the daughter of Stephen "Steve" Warren Gregory and Nanette Swanson Gregory of Weaverville. She graduated from Dunedin High School in Dunedin, Fla., in 1999. After her graduation from Catawba, she had worked as a child support enforcement agent at the Cabarrus County Department of Social Services, then as a substitute teacher at Footprints Christian Academy in Kannapolis.

Friends and classmates who would like to make additional contributions to the Anna Katherine Gregory Vance Memorial Endowed Scholarship may do so by contacting the Catawba College Development Office at (704) 637-4394.
