Local Doctor Funds Scholarship for Concord Students

Athens, W.Va. - Dr. Lee Willis, chiropractor and business leader in Princeton provided the annual contribution to the Jerry Ray Willis Chiropractic Scholarship Fund at Concord College on Friday, October 4. Concord President Jerry L. Beasley accepted the gift on behalf of the College.

The scholarships are awarded to pre-chiropractic students who maintain a 3.0 grade point average or better. Students must be residents of southern West Virginia or southwestern Virginia and have a financial need as determined by the College’s financial aid office.

Willis hosts an annual golf tournament in Wytheville each spring and invites business leaders and College supporters. Funds from the tourney provide much-needed financial assistance to pre-chiropractic students.

Dr. Willis said, “Our family supports the College because Concord’s faculty and staff provide all students from southern West Virginia and southwestern Virginia with a quality education emphasizing high academic ideals and standards.”

Dr. Jerry Willis and Dr. Lee Willis own Willis Chiropractic with locations in Princeton, W.Va. and Wytheville, Va.
