Citizens Bank of West Virginia serves as Trustee of the William A. Keller Scholarship Fund and will annually grant scholarships in accordance to the scholarship trust guidelines. Each year thousands of dollars will be awarded in educational scholarships; however, the number of scholarships and the amount of each scholarship will vary according to the qualifying applicants as prioritized in the William A.
