New scholarship for Shepherd College

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - The Shepherd College Foundation has announced the creation of the Batten Scholarship.

The endowed scholarship was established by Susan Batten, a 1977 graduate of Shepherd. She is currently an associate dean at the Medical College of Ohio's School of Nursing in Toledo, Ohio.

The scholarship will provide an annual award to current full-time Shepherd students who maintain a grade-point average of at least 3.0 and who have been lifelong residents of Jefferson or Berkeley counties. The scholarship will benefit both social work and nursing majors at Shepherd.

Batten's late husband, Richard K. Batten, served as director of social work at City Hospital in Martinsburg, W.Va., from 1976 to 1995, as well as working with the West Virginia Wesleyan and University of Maryland social work programs.

Donations to the fund may be sent to the Shepherd College Foundation, P.O. Box 3210, Shepherdstown, WV 25443-3210.
