CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) — The University of Charleston School of Pharmacy reshared a post from Feb. 2016 telling people how Betty White is a “special friend” of UC.
They say Dr. Edwin Welch, president of the University of Charleston at the time, invited White to receive an honorary degree in 1991.
They say that White, “surprised everyone by accepting and attending the commencement ceremony.”
The school says that she, “enjoyed the visit so much,” that she came back two other times. One time for a fundraising event for the Clay Tower Building and another time for its dedication, according to the Facebook post.
UC says that White was a “dedicated supporter,” and that the University in 2016 had, “an endowed scholarship in her name.”
