For immediate use
Dorothy Brower, a native of Southern Pines, recently retired from Durham Technical Community College after 35 years. Now the Durham Tech Foundation is offering a scholarship in her honor that will be open to graduate of Moore, Orange, and Durham County high schools. Brower, a 1969 graduate of West Southern Pines High School, went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree from North Carolina Central University. Upon her graduation, she accepted a position as an instructor in Durham Technical Community College’s Adult Basic Education program. Some of the positions Brower held through her years at Durham Tech include coordinator of CETA, coordinator for New Industry training, program director of Adult Education in Orange County, assistant dean of Ault Education, director of Personnel Services, and Assistant to the President for Community Outreach. A campus-wide retirement party was held last month in Brower’s honor.
The Dorothy A. Brower Scholarship of $500 will be awarded to a graduate of a high school in Moore, Orange, or Durham counties or Durham Tech's Adult High School Diploma/GED program. The first scholarship will be awarded this fall.
Brower, the daughter of the late Hosea and Dorothy Cornelius Brower of Southern Pines, now resides in Southern Pines.
