Proc and Bobbie Caudill Scholarship Endowment established

337

The Morehead State University Foundation has announced the establishment of the Proc and Bobbie Caudill Scholarship Endowment. The Caudills have a rich history in Morehead and have been longtime supporters of Morehead State University.   

B. Proctor “Proc” Caudill (72) and Roberta “Bobbie” Hough Caudill (72) both grew up in Morehead and attended the Breckinridge Training School, where they graduated in 1967. They continued their education at MSU where Bobbie received her degree in education and Proc received his degree in business. The two have since influenced Morehead and the surrounding community through their years of service and philanthropy.  

Proc is also the former chairman, president and CEO of People’s Bank in Morehead and Sandy Hook. Following in his mother’s footsteps, he devoted his career to People’s Bank serving in several leadership positions. He later served as the director for Kentucky Bank in Paris. For many years, Proc served on the MSU Foundation’s Board of Trustees and was recognized for his accomplishments by being inducted into the MSU Alumni Association’s Alumni Hall of Fame in 2001.  

Bobbie served as a member of the first Spring Gala planning committee in 1993 and remained a longtime volunteer. Most recently, the Caudill Family Heritage Room in the newly renovated Adron Doran University Center was named in honor of the Caudills’ generous act of philanthropy.  

With this endowment, the Caudills hope to give opportunity to future students. 

“So many students need financial assistance to be able to attend college and we want to help,” said Proc. 

“Students need all the extra help they can get,” Bobbie added. “We hope this scholarship will help with the financial burden.” 

Their endowment was created to benefit students attending Morehead State University who are studying in the Elmer R. Smith College of Business and Technology with preference given to Rowan or Elliott County residents.  

This scholarship endowment was established as part of the Soar to New Heights Scholarship Campaign.
