The Rufus M. Dalton Leadership Scholarship was established in 2014 in honor of its namesake and his 90th birthday. From his service in World War II, where he earned a Bronze Star and Purple Heart for his heroic service, to his career as an entrepreneur, philanthropist, mission worker, Sunday school teacher, volunteer, role model, and pillar of our community, Rufus is an inspiration to many. He has supported countless worthy causes with his time, wisdom and guidance, but perhaps his most profound influence has been a defining role and his decades-long tenure on the board of North Carolina Outward Bound School.
This annual scholarship awards an exemplary student with an all-expenses-paid, 22-day backpacking, rock climbing, and whitewater canoeing course in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Included in this award is the provision of gear required for the wilderness course; the total experience is valued at $4,800.
