Hospice of the Panhandle welcomes new board members

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Hospice of the Panhandle recently welcomed Berkeley Springs, W.Va., residents Linda McGraw and Susan Trump to its board of directors.

McGraw and Trump came to volunteer for Hospice prior to joining the board as a result of personal experiences with having hospice care for family members, according to a news release.

McGraw and Trump serve on the board but both would like to be patient care volunteers one day as well, according to the release.

Both are active community members. While Trump is currently focusing on her family, she has previously been involved in the Morgan County school system and the United Way. McGraw is active in many organizations, including Eastern Star, Morgan County Master Gardeners and Delta Kappa Gamma Society International. 

"I'm thrilled to be part of an organization that is run by such dedicated people, and provides such a valuable service to the area," McGraw said.
