Happy 100th birthday to longtime Warren Wilson friend Selma Burns

Warmest birthday wishes are extended to Selma Burns, a longtime friend of Warren Wilson College, who was born Oct. 12, 1913. Her 100th birthday is being celebrated on campus Oct. 14 with a birthday lunch.

Selma and her husband, the late Mel Burns, established a scholarship fund at Warren Wilson College in 1985 “for the benefit of a full-time student with demonstrated financial need and with preference given to foreign students.” Their generosity has benefited many students, as well as the College itself, over the ensuing decades. Happy 100th, Selma!
