Enriching the legal workforce

“I know what it’s like to not have the money to do the things you want. I feel very good about us giving this money to help other people become successful. Bill and I agree that organizations with diverse workforces make better decisions.” —Linda Farthing

Linda and Bill Farthing ’74 agree on the critical importance of higher education, scholarship support and diversity. It was an easy decision for them to donate $100,000 to the UNC School of Law to create the Bill and Linda Farthing Diversity Scholarship. The Farthings were inspired by the standards of the Carolina Covenant, UNC’s undergraduate scholarship program that enables eligible low-income students to graduate from Carolina debt-free.
