Bertee and Retta Faye Adkins Scholarship Established
Some of you, no doubt, remember Dr. Bertee Adkins, who taught business courses here from 1973 until he retired in 1998.
Remembering how he struggled financially when he enrolled at Pikeville College in 1949 and how Eastern further changed his life when he transferred here later, the Floyd County native wanted to do something to help future generations of EKU students achieve their own educational dreams. So he recently established the Dr. Bertee (Bert T.) and Retta Faye (Jett) Adkins Endowed Scholarship for deserving students in our College of Business and Technology.
