June Davis McCormick '49
June Davis McCormick '49 established a scholarship in 2010, on the occasion of her 60th class reunion, in loving memory of her sister, Evelyn Knight. June grew up in Reedville, Virginia and graduated from the College of Mary Washington in 1949 with a degree in home economics. She was a proud graduate and served as the Class of 1949 agent until a year before she died. June’s professional life was mostly as an assistant to her sister, Evelyn Knight, singer, model and entertainer in the 1940s and 1950s and then to her husband, John McCormick, radio personality of KMOX in St. Louis, Missouri. She was a fun, loyal friend who fiercely loved her family and never forgot her Virginia roots as well as a lover of all things purple. Mrs. McCormick passed away in February 2019 the day after her 92nd birthday. Her niece, Happy Urick is the scholarship representative.
