Congratulations to the generous donations, promotion of golf | Opinion


To Todd and Rachel Cornett for their substantial donation which will allow the Delaney Wykle Animal Wellness Center to be built on Gray Flats Road next spring. Wykle, 22, died in a helicopter crash in the Bahamas on July 4, 2019, while traveling with her childhood friend, Kameron Cline, also from Beckley. Delaney and her sister Makayla started supporting the shelter when they were children. The center will now pay tribute to him by providing veterinary care to animals in shelters, including sterilization and sterilization services. Ultimately, the shelter will also provide sterilization and sterilization services for pets. Since her death, a number of people have reported that the young woman has brightened their lives with her kindness and sense of adventure. An anonymous donor established scholarships in her name at the University of West Virginia, where she graduated in 2019. Donations can be made by writing “Delaney Wykle Animal Wellness Center” on the check note line and can be mailed or brought to 325 Gray Flats Road, Beckley, WV 25801. Donations are tax deductible.
