William Bales, a Beckley native now living in Williamsburg, VA created this endowment to honor his mother and father, Thelma and Woodrow Bales, and to recognize his siblings for their achievements after graduating from WWHS. The donor also hopes that this fund will recognize the faculty and staff at Woodrow Wilson High School who were such a positive influence on the Bales children, setting them on a course to success in the fields of business, government, medicine, and education. This fund will provide scholarship assistance for a college-bound WWHS senior.
Woodrow Wilson High School graduating senior. Based on financial need, academic ability, and participation in at least one school activity (sports, band, and clubs).
