NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - A former Fort Monroe librarian bequeathed nearly $1 million to the Peninsula Community Foundation through her will.
Carolyn Lackey left the money to the foundation in order to establish a scholarship fund for Peninsula High School students. Born in Newport News, Lackey attended Newport News High School, Greenbrier College and Virginia Commonwealth University.
She worked at the Fort Monroe library for more than 40 years and never married and had children of her own. Instead, she dedicated her life to the community.
The Peninsula Scholarship Fund sent three high school students to colleges in September, Desmond Green, Katherine Hellman and Thomas McGovern.
