Logan, WV - The recipients of the Shell Family Scholarships for the Fall 2010/Spring 2011 academic year are being announced by Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College.
The Shell Family Scholarships were established in partnership with the Southern West Virginia Community College Foundation in 2008, according to Vice-President for Development and Southern Foundation Liaison Ronald E. Lemon.
Robert Shell, Jr., a successful international businessman and leader, is well known for his philanthropy and support of young people throughout the world. He and his family have always maintained an interest in education, but more importantly realize the financial hardship students have in attaining a college education.
“The Shell Family Scholarship is an opportunity for our family to provide continuing support of higher education to the citizens of southern West Virginia, and hopefully be a stepping stone for others to follow,” said Shell.
Shell is the recipient of numerous awards and recognitions. In 1999, he was elected to the Marshall University Business Hall of Fame. In 2002, Shell was elected to the West Virginia University Hall of Fame, and on December 4, 2007 he was honored by the Education Alliance.
The Shell Family Scholarship recipients for 2010/2011 are as follows:
Chelsey Workman is a 2010 graduate of Logan High School where she was active in many school clubs and organizations. Workman was Miss Logan County in 2009 and assisted in hosting the Logan County Fireman's Ball and the Matt Patterson Toy Drive. Chelsey lives at Omar, WV and is currently employed at Shoe Show.
Her plans are to earn a degree in education at Southern and then transfer to Marshall University to pursue a Bachelor's Degree in education.
Michael "Bryce" Dalton is a 2010 graduate of Logan High School where he participated in basketball, baseball, and golf.
