A scholarship at Pfeiffer University has been established to honor Joetta and Bill Rinehart of Asheville. Friends of the couple led the effort to raise gifts and future commitments of over $95,000 to fund the scholarship in recognition of the couple’s church and community service.
In acknowledgment of the Rinehart’s lifelong service to the United Methodist Church, the Joetta and Bill Rinehart Endowed Scholarship will be awarded annually to Pfeiffer students who are preparing for church-related vocational service. Eligible students include those majoring in Christian Education, Christian Education-Music, Christian Missions, Music, Religion, and Youth Ministries.
Joetta Rinehart served for more than 15 years on the board of trustees at Pfeiffer, a comprehensive United Methodist-related university, with multiple campuses, including sites in Misenheimer, Charlotte and the Triangle. Established in 1885, the University emphasizes the development of students as servant leaders through an integration of service experiences and academic training.
