Announcing our new campaign to raise $30,000.00 in honor of our 30 years of the Chapter's mission to fund scholarships for Boone County students who attend WVU. Since 1987, our Chapter has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars of scholarships to well more than a hundred students. Help us continue our mission by making a tax deductible $30 for 30 years donation today!
The purpose of the organization shall be to promote, support, and provide assistance to West Virginia University, its affiliated entities and its Boone County students; to unite those individuals who desire to dedicate their efforts to the betterment of West Virginia University by such activities, and to encourage closer fellowship and establish better understanding between the University, the alumni, students, former students and friends of West Virginia University in this area.
The Boone County Chapter is recognized throughout our state and the nation for its preeminent academic scholarship program. It currently endows scholarships with the West Virginia University Foundation, Inc. The chapter has five named scholarships: The “Buster” and Geraldine Atkins, the Gus and Mary Lee Shaffer, Jr.,the Dennie Lee and Judy Hill, the Judie Hall, and the Larry LaFon. The lifetime gifts made in our name by two of our benefactors: H. G. “Gus” and Mary Lee Shaffer and Dennie Lee and Judy Hill will provide a significant endowment for our future Boone County WVU students.
