30 for 30 Drive SUCCESS!

  

Our campaign to raise $30,000 in honor of our 30 years of the Chapter's mission to fund scholarships for Boone County students who attend WVU was a resounding SUCCESS! Since 1987, our Chapter has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars of scholarships to well more than one hundred students. 
        

Your generous support raised $30,320 in 2017.

The Annual Pig Roast is the chapter's largest fund raising event. Money collected from the event is earmarked for scholarships. Any Boone County student who applies for a scholarship is eligible to receive financial help to attend schools under the WVU umbrella. The chapter also provides book gift certificates to Boone County students attending WVU & WVU Tech. This year, the chapter provided more than $30,000 in scholarship to deserving Boone County students.  Since the chapter's inception, more than 300 scholarships have been awarded.

Scholarship winners gather at the 30th Annual Pig Roast

 

Each winter, the chapter hosts a pizza party for high school seniors who are considering, or planning on attending WVU. WVU officials and current Boone County WVU Students also attend to answer any questions prospective students and parents may have about the University.
