2017

Your Community Foundation recently awarded the Jim Dunn Memorial Scholarship to 2017 graduates Chase Dotson of Poca High School, Timothy Kinney of Bridgeport High School and Haley Snodgrass of Capital High School. The scholarships, valued at $1,000 each, are earmarked for college-related expenses.

This year’s recipients were selected out of 12 West Virginia high school cross country and track and field athlete applicants — all of whom attribute their academic success to hard work, discipline, and the skills gained from their involvement in sports. The recipients will be recognized at the annual Jim Dunn Run in Morgantown on July 14.

“Our scholarship committee is consistently impressed by the experiences students share about how they have benefited from sports. Time management, goal-setting, teamwork and learning how to overcome failures are common characteristics among applicants and valuable skills in today’s workforce,” says Darlene Dunn, chair of the Jim Dunn Memorial Scholarship Committee and wife of the late Jim Dunn.
