Wesley House of Cambridge University
Rev. T. Jack McCollough, ’47, of Woodbine, attended the Wesley Heritage Tour of England for Young Harris College alumni. Deeply inspired by this experience and wishing he had had the opportunity to attend such a tour earlier in his ministry, Rev. McCollough and his family began raising funds to establish the Thomas and Virginia McCollough Scholarship Fund shortly after his return home. The scholarship serves as a memorial to his late wife, Virginia, who passed away only a short time before he traveled to England. The family hopes this study abroad opportunity will encourage cross-cultural exchanges and a better understanding of the origins of Methodism. Rev. McCollough’s daughters, Candace, ’76, and Celeste, ’77, benefitted from scholarships while at YHC. They now reside in Decatur, Georgia. Candace is a lecturer in German at Georgia Tech, as well as a potter specializing in ceramic urns. After retiring from law in her 40s, Celeste began painting and now paints professionally.
