Reichman Scholarship Fund

Andrew Reichman's parents were immigrants who moved to Andrews, North Carolina, to start an egg farm after World War II. The family business succeeded, and Andrew Reichman and his daughters decided to open the Reichman Scholarship Fund to support the community that enabled their business to grow. Mr. Reichman recognizes the value of an education. Through this scholarship he hopes to honor his parents and sister and provide the students of Andrews an opportunity to pursue their dreams and attend any school in the UNC system.
