Alison Thornburg, Charlotte – Formerly in the mortgage business, Thornburg is re-training to become a registered nurse. She studies at Carolinas College of Health Sciences and has one daughter.

Founder Susan Andersen created the fund as a way to strengthen local families. Higher education leads to better jobs, higher income, and greater self-esteem in women, which in turn helps set the same standards and expectations for their children. Students whose parents did not attend college are less likely to complete a college degree themselves.
The Answer Scholarship Endowment is housed at Foundation for the Carolinas, which provides financial oversight and administrative support.
