Dr. and Mrs. Lewis Gravely first created a scholarship fund at Beckley College in memory of his aunt, Mrs. Shroyer. Following her husband’s death, Beckley College started awarding a scholarship in Ken Shroyer’s memory using money from their general fund. The scholarship honoring Coach Shroyer was not endowed and eventually ceased to exist. Upon the closing of MSU, Dr. Gravely directed that the assets held by the Alma Davenport Shroyer Scholarship Fund be moved to BAF and use for a scholarship honoring both Ken and Alma. She taught in Raleigh County for over 30 years. Dr. Gravely noted, “This scholarship will forever honor their legacy of service and involvement with our youth and with education.” This need/merit based scholarship will benefit a resident of Raleigh County who has successfully completed two semesters of post high school college level work.
