Art and Appreciation for VWC Supporters Henry and Eleanor Watts

01-20-2017

On behalf of Virginia Wesleyan College and in appreciation of their longtime support, President Scott D. Miller recently presented VWC Board of Trustees member Dr. Henry Watts and his wife, Eleanor, with the original artwork from the College's 2016 Christmas card (view photo). President Miller visited the Watts at their Virginia Beach home on January 18—Dr. Watts’ birthday. The artwork, created by Virginia artist and VWC parent Robbie Garrity, features a snow-covered Godwin Hall. Dr. Watts served as Chair of the College's Board of Trustees in 1999 when Godwin Hall opened. He joined the VWC Board in 1989 and continues to serve today as Parliamentarian. Mrs. Watts was an active member of the Women of Wesleyan. The couple returns to Virginia Wesleyan often to cheer for Marlins basketball.
