West Virginia Norther Community College held their annual scholarship dinner Saturday night to raise money for current and prospective students.
At this annual dinner they also honor someone who supports the college and their students. This year the honoree was Eagle Manufacturing CEO Joe Eddy. Eddy is a member of the Foundation Board, and has sponsored several scholarships in his name. He says he’s honored to be given this recognition.
“The things that have already been said tonight are fantastic,” Eddy said. “This is an incredible affair and I am very moved. I am honored to be chosen this year as the honoree.”
Eddy says the school does a great job of getting students ready for industrial jobs that come into the area, and he’s proud to be a part of that.
