Davis and Elkins Student Assembly Donates to Kate Bolgar Memorial Fund

Posted: Updated:

Students at a local college have made a gift in memory of a local girl.

The Student Assembly at Davis and Elkins College recently donated $500 to the Kate Bolgar Memorial Fund.

The fund helps provide fire safety programs to schools and 4H clubs.

It was named in honor of 11-year-old Kate Bolgar, who died in a house fire in Elkins in October.

College staff said the students decided to support the cause on their own.

"So they took it upon themselves to give a donation to this local family that was in need. And that was just their effort to give back here locally," said Scott Goddard, of Davis and Elkins College.

The donation will also help support bird-of-prey conservation, a cause Kate Bolgar felt passionate about.
