Walter "Pop" Jarvis Scholarship

When Pop first visited the town of Crossnore in 1948, he saw a great need to help the children of this small mountain community. Working at the Crossnore School as a teacher, coach and house parent, Pop became to many a father figure, teaching the boys right from wrong and instilling in them values to help guide them through life.

In 1999, friends and former students of Pop’s created a scholarship fund in his name. Contributions were used to establish a permanent scholarship endowment fund for students at Avery County High School. The fund honors his life of devotion to helping others, and his loyalty to the community. This scholarship continues Pop’s lifelong work of helping young people make positive decisions and fulfill their potential.
