Leaving a Legacy

‘Legacy’ is defined by Merriam-Webster as ‘something (such as property or money) that is received from someone who has died’ or ‘something that happened in the past or that comes from someone in the past’. This article is a tribute to Gladys C. Butcher and Georgia M. Crockett, former elementary school teachers, who undoubtedly knew the meaning of the word ‘legacy’ without ever having to consult a dictionary. Due in large part to their generosity, the Braxton County Memorial Hospital Foundation has exceeded the fundraising goal of the initial capital campaign, and is currently finalizing the installation of a new Computerized Tomography (CT) scanner within the facility.
