Ava Gardner at Atlantic Christian College

ava_gardner2One of my volunteers, Monk Moore, pointed out a picture of Ava Gardner in the 1941 Atlantic Christian College Yearbook.  It turns out she was only partly through her freshman year when she was found by a modeling agency and dropped out of college.   The picture lists her as being from Wilson, NC, which is where she lived with her mother and attended high school at Rock Ridge HS.

Monk also said that his uncle used to play the piano and Ava would stop by his house with her friend and listen.  Incredulously, Monk said that her friend was better looking than Ava. ava_gardner
