A Richmond attorney has donated $2.6 million to his alma mater Randolph Macon College, earmarking most of the money for scholarships and for the athletic department.
Everette "Buddy" Allen, a 1962 graduate, says that the scholarship help he received contributed to his success and that he and his wife Ann want to offer Richmond-area students the same opportunity to attend the college.
According to college officials, $1.25 million will be used to establish a scholarship fund with preference given to Richmond city public schools, students participating in a college preparation and mentoring program, and students transferring from Richmond's J. Sergeant Reynolds Community College.
Allen says that $1 million of his donation will go toward an athletic endowment fund to support the school's Division III sports programs.
