Charles E. and Jacqueline Isbell
In 1990, Mr. and Mrs. Charles "Ed" Isbell established a scholarship in honor of Charles' mother, Myrtle, on her 90th birthday. Myrtle Isbell was a member of the UMW Class of 1923. At that time, the school was called the State Normal School for Women and offered high school and professional courses. The school prepared most women to become teachers; however, students could study manual, household, or rural arts. Myrtle became a teacher of Home Economics. Mrs. Isbell died in 1994. Ed's sister, Emily Isbell Ukrop, is also a family representative for the scholarship.
