DSLCC Foundation Awards Inaugural Arleigh Warwick St. Clair Respiratory Therapy Scholarship

Clifton Forge, VA (Sept. 27, 2019) - The DSLCC Educational Foundation is proud to announce the awarding of the inaugural Arleigh Warwick St. Clair Respiratory Therapy Scholarship to Ms. Kristine Hall, a nursing student from Botetourt County.

The Arleigh Warwick St. Clair Respiratory Therapy Scholarship was established in August 2018 by Mr. Robert Lewis St. Clair in honor of his wife’s memory. Mrs. St. Clair passed away in 2017, after a four-year battle with progressive arthritic lung disease. During this time, Mrs. St. Clair became very close with the pulmonary exercise unit at LewisGale Hospital Alleghany. As such, it is fitting that the scholarship be intended for an applicant who plans to study respiratory therapy or nursing.

Mrs. St. Clair was a lifelong resident of Covington. She and her husband of 60 years were blessed with three children – Tim, Lisa, and Steve; five grandchildren – Andrew, Daniel, Sarah, Ian, and Amanda; and two great-grandchildren – Caitlin and David.

Mrs. St. Clair was a 1975 Graduate of DSLCC, having completed a certificate in Steno-Clerical Arts with a 4.0 GPA.

In her community, Mrs. St.Clair was a member and past president of the Jackson River Garden Club, where she excelled in floral design. She later expanded her artistic design into quilting and was a member of the Peacemaker Quilt Club. She was also a member of Edgemont Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church and the Covington Women’s Club and was a volunteer at LewisGale Hospital-Alleghany.
