Grad gives $2.6 million to Randolph-Macon
A Richmond lawyer has donated $2.6 million to Randolph-Macon College, earmarking the bulk of it for scholarships and for the athletic department, school officials said yesterday.
Everette G. “Buddy” Allen, 66, a 1962 Randolph-Macon graduate, said that the scholarship assistance he received contributed to his success, and that he and his wife, Ann, wanted to offer Richmond-area students the same opportunities.
College officials said $1.25 million will be used to establish a scholarship fund with preference given to Richmond city public school students, students participating in a college-preparation and mentoring program, and students transferring from Richmond’s J. Sergeant Reynolds Community College.
“We are grateful for what [Randolph-Macon] did for me many years ago, and we hope to give many more local students, particularly Richmond students who may not have the resources to attend a private college, the chance to discover Randolph-Macon and its top-notch liberal arts curriculum,” said Mr. Allen, a partner with LeClair Ryan, a Richmond firm.
The remaining $1 million of his gift will create an athletic endowment fund to support the school’s Division III sports programs.
Mall sex assaults may be linked
Howard County police said they think a man who “upskirted” a teenage girl while she was shopping with her mother at Columbia Mall may be the same suspect wanted in an earlier assault.
Police said yesterday that the 16-year-old and her mother reported the upskirting incident last month. It happened in the parking lot.
Police said they have video footage that shows a man following the woman and her daughter and reaching under the teenager’s skirt. The video shows the man carrying a camera under a jacket or a bag.
