Quick Facts

  • Designated to support theatre scholarships, the generous gift is from the estate of the late Dr. Ann Coleman Peyton, who worked in higher education.
  • Peyton had family ties to the Carolinas: her mother, Mary Howey Kell Peyton Dekle, was from Lancaster, S.C., and she had a cousin, Emma Louise “Emmy Lou” Howey, who attended Winthrop and later died in a 1950 car accident.
  • The first scholarships are expected to be awarded in 2015.
