D&E Students Donate To Support Fire Safety Awareness

Posted: Updated:

Local college students have made a gift in memory of an area girl.

The Student Assembly at Davis and Elkins College has given $500 to the Kate Bolgar Memorial Fund, which provides fire safety programs to schools and 4-H clubs.

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

The school said it was the students' idea.

"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 Steve Goddard, Vice President for Student Affairs at D&E.

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