ROCK HILL, S.C. -- A passion for the environment and for travel led Lillie “Sis” Fuller Moredock ’47 to establish a permanently endowed scholarship for biology, environmental sciences and environmental studies majors.

Funded by an estate gift of more than $179,000, the Lillie Fuller Moredock Endowed Scholarship will provide undergraduate scholarships and student travel funds for academic purposes (including study abroad, academic conference presentations and undergraduate research) to students majoring in biology, environmental sciences or environmental studies.

The Lillie Fuller Moredock Endowed Scholarship serves as a tribute to the late Lillie and William Moredock by supporting their love of the environment and travel. Lillie Moredock earned a degree in home economics at Winthrop. She and her husband lived in Kershaw, S.C., Lancaster, S.C., and Fort Mill, S.C., before moving to Summerville, S.C. The couple traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and Mrs. Moredock collected plants and seeds from across the country to bring home and cultivate in her garden. Mr. and Mrs. Moredock “loved all things natural, both flora and fauna,” according to their daughter, Eve Moredock Stacey, ’76.

Stacey added that she believes the Lillie Fuller Moredock Endowed Scholarship will allow her mother’s legacy to continue through future generations of Winthrop students.

“To be able to combine their appreciation for education with their love of nature and travel seemed like a perfect gift for my parents to share with others,” said Stacey. “It was their hope, and now it is my brothers’ and my hope, that their gift will make possible for some Winthrop students, the pursuit of nature, science, and travel that is only possible through education.”
