Biographical or historical data
Betty Coe Cinquegrana, neé Betty Lee Coe, graduated from Louisa County High School in Mineral, Virginia in 1960. She was offered the M. Frieda Koontz Award that helped fund her education at Madison College from 1960-1964. As a divorcee raising two children, Betty's mother could only afford to give her daughter 100 dollars towards tuition. The scholarships and financial assistance Coe received were vital to her academic success, and as such she wanted to give back to the College and help others with demonstrated financial need. To this end, she established the Betty Coe '64 and Paul J. Cinquegrana Scholarship, in honor of her and her husband, Paul. The scholarship is awarded to business students and future teachers. (See box 1, folder 36 titled "Making Gray Days Brighter," for additional background information about Betty Coe Cinquegrana and the scholarship in her name.) During her time at Madison College, Betty started out as a math major and later changed her major to business. She was also involved in many organizations such as Kappa Delta Pi, Phi Beta Lambda, Pi Omega Pi, and Zeta Tau Alpha.
