Family sets up Pfeiffer scholarship

Longtime Pfeiffer University supporters and Stanly County residents James and Doris Mauney recently endowed a scholarship to benefit local Pfeiffer students.
Dr. Chuck Ambrose, the university’s president, thanked the couple for their continued support and for the establishment of the James and Doris Mauney Endowed Scholarship.
“We are deeply appreciative of the relationship that James and Doris share with Pfeiffer University. James has been a very active alumnus of Pfeiffer Junior College and both he and Doris have a deep interest in Pfeiffer’s future,” Ambrose said.
“The establishment of the James and Doris Mauney Endowed Scholarship at Pfeiffer will help provide an outstanding educational option for generations of future Pfeiffer students.”
The scholarship will provide support to Pfeiffer students who are residents of Stanly County.
“Our family, with a history in Stanly County since the early 1800s, can think of no better investment in our community than through the lives of our young people,” said James Mauney. “We love Pfeiffer, and we want it to continue to thrive in the future.”A member of Pfeiffer Junior College’s class of 1946, James Mauney has remained an active part of the campus community and has provided leadership to the university through his service as a member of the university alumni board. Additionally, he celebrates a long family history with Pfeiffer. His father, T. Burt Mauney, served as a trustee for many years and hosted Annie Pfeiffer, one of the university’s namesakes, in the Mauney home numerous times during her campus visits in the early 1940s.
The Mauney family also represents a second scholarship, The Mauney Endowed Scholarship, which was started nearly 30 years ago by Mr. and Mrs. T. Burt Mauney. The Mauney Endowed Scholarship assists students from Stanly County who attend Highland Baptist Church.
