To once again emphasize its commitment to community and education, Fruth Pharmacy participated in a luncheon held to honor the recipients of 2009 Fruth scholarships at Marshall University.  The luncheon was hosted by Marshall University’s Development Department and took place at the Marshall University Memorial Student Center on October 1, 2009.

Since 1992, Fruth Pharmacy has supported its dedication to education through its annual golf tournament. The money raised by this popular event goes to support the many scholarship programs created by the late Jack Fruth and his wife “Babs”. The Fruth family continues this gracious tradition, understanding that higher education is a great privilege that not everyone can afford. This year’s event raised $25,000. Proceeds from the event support scholarships at WVU, Rio Grande University, University of Charleston and Marshall University.

Ms. Jessi Ison of Vinton, Ohio was the recipient of the Jack and Frances Fruth Scholarship for the Marshall University Mid-Ohio Valley Center in Point Pleasant. Ms. Ison will be pursuing nursing.

The four recipients of the Fruth Pharmacy Scholarship for 2009/2010 were: Justine Bowe of Nitro, WV (Teacher Education), Ashley Hackett of Bancroft, WV (Athletic Training), Chelsay Helmick of Millwood, WV (Visual Art) and Krysta Jenkins of Point Pleasant WV (Accounting).
