Thurston H. Strunk Professorship in Nursing Fund


Thurston H. Strunk of Abingdon, Va., and his wife, Kathleen Miller Strunk, had a deep and abiding interest in the welfare of Southwest Virginia and its people, and particularly in higher education in the area. Mr. Strunk died in 1980 and Mrs. Strunk in 2004. Mrs. Strunk made a very generous bequest to The University of Virginia's College at Wise for two professorships in Nursing. The professorships pay tribute to the support Mr. and Mrs. Strunk gave to Southwest Virginia in so many ways, and to the generosity of Mrs. Strunk whose bequest had made possible the establishment of this chair.

This chair is currently vacant
