ELKINS - The Davis & Elkins College Student Assembly recently contributed $500 to the Kate Bolgar Memorial Fund to assist with providing fire safety programs in schools and 4-H clubs.
Kate Bolgar, 11, was the granddaughter of Jane Corey, director of human relations at Davis & Elkins College. The child was among family members who died in a fire at a house on Central Street in October.
The fund was established by her father, Dmitriy Bolgar, his wife, Courtney, and Dmitriy's father, Michael, all of Manassas, Va., with a primary goal of raising fire safety awareness.

Additional money may go toward birds of prey conservation, which Dimitriy Bolgar said was his daughter's passion.
