Elmo J. Hurst Memorial Scholarship Fund
This scholarship fund was established in 2023 to remember Mr. Elmo J. Hurst. This renewable scholarship will support WV students enrolled in WVU Tech School of Nursing in Beckley, WV. Mr. Hurst was a great advocator of higher education. As a stock holder in three companies located in Beckley, WV that provide in-home care to the elderly and disabled, he realized there was a shortage of Registered Nurses in the Beckley area. He wanted to provide an opportunity for anyone desiring a degree in nursing to have an opportunity to do so.
Mr. Hurst was a founding member of Beckley Area Foundation.
