Athas and Helen Soter (Athanasios and Eleni Karakasis Soteracopoulos) Memorial Fund
A bequest from sisters, Freda and Sula Soter created this endowment to honor their parents, ethnic Greeks who were born and reared in Katirli, Turkey, before immigrating to the United States. Sula was a supervisor in the business office of the telephone company. Freda was a claims representative for the Social Security Office. Half of the income from this fund will go to YMCA of Southern West Virginia for programs directed to indigent children, a quarter for the Raleigh County Public Library and a quarter for Beckley Concert Association.
