The Faull and Betty Trover Allied Health Endowment reached $100,000 in value with
the recent gift from its co-founder, Mrs. Betty Trover. This is the college s 23rd
endowment to reach this value. Providing scholarship support for students enrolled
in Occupational Therapy Assistant, Respiratory Care, Nursing, and Paramedic programs,
the Trover Endowment will make available five $700 awards to allied health students
in Hopkins and Webster Counties during the 2014-2015 academic year.
On August 21, MCC President Dr. Judy Rhoads and the Advancement Office hosted a luncheon
honoring Mrs. Trover. Following the luncheon, it was announced that a skills lab
(room 210/Hatley Building on the Health Sciences Campus) had been named in honor of
Dr. Faull and Betty Trover.
The endowment was originally established by Dr. Trover in 1995 and has received periodic
gifts over the years. Mrs. Trover stated that Faull and I both appreciate that this
college is a part of Madisonville. One of my daughters-in-law trained as a respiratory
therapist, and these degrees are so important to our area hospitals.
Mrs. Trover has also provided major support for the Schools Counts! program in Hopkins
County. In 2007, Mrs. Trover was honored at the annual Kentucky Community and Technical
College System Gala as a statewide benefactor. She has been an advocate for education
in and around Hopkins County for more than five decades.
