(8/29/14) — 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 Aug. 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.
