Jason Elswick died in October 2005 due to a tragic car accident. His parents, David and Pam Elswick, wanted to help students like Jason fulfill their dreams of becoming a teacher. After that, they decided to establish the Jason Elswick Memorial Scholarship Fund. The 5K Run/Walk, which is held at Bluefield College each fall, helps in remembering the life of Elswick while also providing financial support to other students majoring in teacher education at Bluefield College.
