The Frank family established the scholarship to honor Carole W. Bruce, secretary to the Stanley and Dorothy Frank Family Foundation and legal and financial adviser to the Frank family for over 40 years. The scholarship also honors the legacy of Stanley Frank, an outstanding Greensboro citizen and philanthropist.

The gift will become an endowment, distributions from which will provide scholarships for second- or third-year law students in good academic standing with an interest in tax or estate-planning law. Bruce, an attorney with Smith Moore Leatherwood LLP, has extensive experience with matters relating to individual income tax, estate and inheritance tax, estate administration, charitable organizations, and other tax planning matters.

“Elon Law School has already shown its ability to contribute significantly to the betterment of the greater Greensboro region,” said Barry Frank on behalf of the Frank family. “Giving back to the community has always been a core value of our family and we are pleased to support Elon Law, an outstanding educational addition to the community and beyond.”

George R. Johnson, Jr., Dean of Elon University School of Law, expressed appreciation for the gift on behalf of the faculty and administration of the law school. "We are grateful to The Frank Family Foundation for this generous gift, which will enable the law school to reward students for outstanding academic performance and service to their communities," Johnson said. "We look forward to awarding the Carole W. Bruce Scholarship annually, in the spirit of the legacy that Stanley Frank left for the people of Greensboro."
