Lisa and Frank Emory ’82 Create Scholarship for Eastern N.C. Students
Frank and Lisa Emory believe in the transformative power of education, and they’re committed to putting their beliefs into action.
In 2015 they committed $120,000 to the UNC School of Law to create The Frank E. and Lisa L. Emory Family Scholarship. This award supports law students who have demonstrated academic achievement and are residents of Eastern North Carolina — Frank is originally from Wilson — or Mecklenburg County, where the Emorys live.
