About the Cause

Lillie Ann Heggins Scholarship Foundation

Lillie Ann Heggins was a North Carolina educator for 40 years. Even after she retired, she continued educating the youth daily with an after school program. She believed that every child should have an opportunity to go to college or further their education.

The Lillie Ann Heggins Scholarship is given annually to a graduating high school senior as they enroll in the college of their choice. The goal is to give two $1,000 scholarships bi-annually to help offset the costs of furthering their education. Nothing was more important to Lillie Ann Heggins than her family and helping a child excel in school.
