South-West Insurance continues student support at UVa-Wise



South-West Insurance, a strong supporter of The University of Virginia’s College at Wise, recently made another contribution to a scholarship fund that helps student athletes.

The local company established the South-West Insurance Agency Scholarship Fund in 2002 to assist students participating in intercollegiate athletics at UVa-Wise. The scholarship is awarded to students from local schools.

“Scholarships are always important, but they are more vital than ever as UVa-Wise transitions to NCAA Division II athletic competition,” said Tami Ely, vice chancellor for development and college relations. “South-West Insurance has helped our students for many years, and we appreciate the company’s staunch support.”
