When Westminster alum Anthony Merritt died this year, he and his wife left money to start a scholarship for single mothers at the college.
Tony Merritt was born into poverty. His wife, Anne, says Tony’ mother was the sole provider in his family.
“She worked as a domestic, she had 8 children, things were very, very rough. So Tony always said if we had the means to do it that we should set up a scholarship at Westminster,” says Ann Merrit.
