HUNTINGTON, WV -

Dr. Kimberly A. Burgess, a 1992 graduate of the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine at Marshall University, has created a scholarship at the school in memory of her father.

The Clyde Albert Burgess M.D. Scholarship will be awarded to a medical student who is a resident of southern West Virginia and has a strong desire to practice medicine in the state.

The first recipient will receive $1,000 annually for four years, and later recipients will get yearly allocations based on the endowment's performance.

The late Burgess was a native of Oak Hill and worked as a janitor while enrolled in college. He enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and served in Korea before resuming his studies. In 1961, he graduated from the University of Cincinnati School of Medicine. He practiced medicine for more than 40 years in communities including Berkeley Springs, Philippi and Clarksburg before retiring to Green Bank in Pocahontas County. He died last year at age 82.

His daughter practices medicine at Jackson General Hospital in Ripley and also serves as the deputy commander for clinical operations for the West Virginia National Guard.
