The family of Pikeville College alumna Georgia Muncy Bailey recently established an endowed scholarship to benefit Pike County students. The scholarship honors Bailey’s dedication as an educator and her love for the college. A member of the Legacy Class of Pikeville College’s Distinguished Educators Hall of Fame, Bailey was also a longtime member of the Alumni Association and served on the board of directors. She enjoyed spending time with students and often volunteered on campus. Her late husband, Maurice Bailey, was professor of chemistry, chairman of the science division and director of mining programs at Pikeville College for 18 years. Presenting the scholarship gift to President Paul Patton is Bailey’s brother Layton Maynard.
