Larry G. Valade

Larry Valade established a scholarship in memory of his wife, Thyra, to honor her dedication to protecting wildlife. A native of Denmark and a longtime resident of Stafford County, Va., Mrs. Valade spoke up for the environment when needed. Her love of animals and a special fondness for birds led the couple to donate 20 wooded acres to UMW. Larry also supports the Department of Biological Sciences faculty-led trips and ornathology research.
