Our Four Angels Endowed Scholarship

On October 17, 2023, the Pepperdine community suffered the tragic loss of Niamh Rolston, Peyton Stewart, Asha Weir, and Deslyn Williams, four Seaver College students.

 

These students were bright lights in the Pepperdine community and each one of these students had a special impact on everyone they met. Their absence will long be felt. In an effort to honor their memory, Pepperdine is establishing the "Our Four Angels Endowed Scholarship,"  which will help continue the legacies of Niamh, Peyton, Asha, and Deslyn. 

Pepperdine Legacy Partners

As Pepperdine Legacy Partners (formerly Associated Women for Pepperdine) enters its 65th year, we are looking forward with the hope of expanding our endowment for future generations of Church of Christ students to help them attend Pepperdine. We recognize that the increasing cost of higher education is a serious concern for our students and we are committed now more than ever to help outstanding students from the Churches of Christ come to Pepperdine. By expanding our endowment we hope to be able to offer more significant scholarships annually to our students. In honor of our 65 years, our goal for this Pepperdine Gives Day is to raise $65,000 to support our current and future students.
