Generations Christmas: Bobby Nicholas & Trevor Dion Nicholas
Ring in the festive season with local singer Bobby Nicholas and his son, Trevor Dion Nicholas, for a father/son Christmas Celebration – raising money to continue to support the scholarship in the name of the late Doris Marilyn Nicholas and the West Virginia University School of Social Work. The concert will be held at Morgantown’s Metropolitan Theatre on High Street on December 15th, 2022.
$20.00 – $125.00
Doris Marilyn Nicholas, Bobby’s wife of 43 years and Trevor’s mother, earned a Doctorate in Education (Ed. D) from West Virginia University and retired as a Social Work Professor after 20 years of dedicated service at WVU.
Doris was a remarkable and astoundingly accomplished advocate for education in the School of Social Work. She nobly focused her efforts, passing on her extensive knowledge to numerous students of color and those from disadvantaged homes. She dedicated her life’s work to opening doors to students with potential and providing them a path to betterment. She also used social work as a channel to bring greater benefit to the world at large. Doris spent 12 years as the Director of Social Services at Ruby Memorial Hospital where she led the development of its medical ethics program.
The unexpected passing of Doris Marilyn Nicholas on January 8, 2021 brought an outpouring of love and support from the Morgantown community, especially from the thousands of students whose lives she had touched over the years. The establishment of the Doris Nicholas Social Work Scholarship for Minority Students will allow her legacy to live on and continue to change the lives of not only young people through advanced education but to the diverse communities surrounding them.
This one-of-a-kind charity event, with all proceeds going to the establishment of the scholarship in Doris’s name, will mark the first time Bobby and Trevor will co-headline a concert together. An ensemble of their combined musical talents and experience, they will bring to their hometown, an evening of music and celebration not to be missed.
