Priscilla Presley received an honorary degree from the prestigious Rhodes College. In bestowing the honor, Rhodes recognized her extraordinary achievement as an actress, producer, author, mother, and businesswoman. Priscilla was raised in a military family that gave her an opportunity to have a chance meeting in the 1960s with a young Army soldier stationed in Germany by the name of Elvis Presley. You may know Priscilla from her role in the three successful Naked Gun films or as Jenna Wade on the long-running television series Dallas.
This whimsical 1980s quartz Geneva Platinum watch comes with a stretch fit band featuring chrome Art Deco accents. It was donated by Will and Michelle Munyon, who managed the sale of Priscilla Presley's estate in 2021.
The Brian LaViolette Foundation was formed by the LaViolette family to honor the memory of their son, Brian, who passed away in a swimming accident in Green Bay, Wisconsin when he was just fifteen years old in 1992. Brian was not only an excellent student, athlete, and musician, but he loved watches, starting his own collection when he was four years of age.
Since 1992, the Brian LaViolette Scholarship Foundation has presented 1,058 scholarships to deserving college-bound students in Northeastern Wisconsin, the United States, and other parts of the world. The Foundation continues Brian's legacy by helping high school seniors financially to achieve their educational dreams and, at the same time, providing them with encouragement and inspiration.
