Jason grew up in Tazewell, Virginia. His parents are David and Pam Elswick. Jason came to Bluefield College with goals of obtaining a bachelor's degree and a teaching licensure to be able to teach math as a public school teacher. Jason's goals were never lived out as he was tragically killed in a car wreck.
Left with a void in their hearts, David and Pam were searching for a way to keep Jason's loving and giving spirit alive. The best way they found to do so was to establish a scholarship in their son's name. They seek to help other students that share Jason's goals in finishing their college education in order to make a difference in the world they will enter.
To raise funds for this scholarship, a 5K walk/run was established to occur in the fall of each year. The first race was held in September 2008. Over 30 runners showed up for the first race. This year we are continuing the tradition with anticipations to see this event continue to grow in participants.
The course will begin at the Bluefield College Dome. Runners will take a route up College Avenue, cut left onto Copley Avenue, and then turn right onto Ferndell Avenue. From Ferndell Avenue, runners will go down Stadium Drive, by the city tennis courts, around Bowen field, and through City Park. Runners will finish at the starting line back at the Bluefield College Dome.
