Dominion Memorial Scholarship

About the Scholarships

The Dominion community suffered tragic losses on April 16, 2007. The Virginia Tech shootings, in Blacksburg, Virginia, took the lives of three college students whose parent or grandparent worked for Dominion.

James C. "Bubba" Brooks, a retired line foreman, lost his granddaughter, Rachael Elizabeth Hill; Granville G. Gwaltney, a retired meter technician, lost his grandson, Matthew Gregory Gwaltney; and David M. "Mike" White, a transmission lineman, lost his daughter, Nicole Regina White, in the classroom shootings.

In memory of Rachael, Matthew and Nicole and in support of Bubba, Granville and Mike, Dominion is proud to offer these scholarships to the children and grandchildren of Dominion employees and retirees.
