New Scholarship Fund – Victoria Grigsby Scholarship

The Community Foundation of Noble County is honored to share a new scholarship fund for West Noble High School seniors.

Victoria Anne Grigsby was born in Wolf Lake on June 5th 1944. She is remembered by her classmates as an excellent and well behaved student. She grew up on West Third St. with her mom Queenie “Mary”, Sister Olivia, Aunt Olga, and Aunt Ena. The family was originally from South Africa, her mother moving here when she was only 4. Her mother worked as the library director at the Ligonier Public Library for many years. Unfortunately, Victoria passed away in June of 1960 from drowning. Her loss was devastating to the family and community.

This scholarship was established through an individual who knew her mother and was deeply affected by the passing of Victoria.
