Ann Nutt Memorial Fund Scholarship

About Ann Nutt

Ann Nutt, was the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resource’s Director of Early Care and Education Quality Initiatives. Early childhood professionals across West Virginia were greatly saddened by her death on October 16, 2006 at the age of 52. In her obituary, her family wrote, “After a fearless and courageous battle against (breast) cancer, Ann was called home to oversee God’s children and will forever be missed by all the lives she touched.”

Ann was an active member of the Governing Board of the West Virginia Association for Young Children (WVAYC), the Apprenticeship for Child Development Specialist State Council (ACDS) and served as our state’s representative on the NAEYC Affiliate Council. She was an ACDS Instructor of Instructors and assisted other states in establishing this training program, including the training of instructors in Alaska.

The scholarship is $750 to attend the Southern Early Childhood Association conference.
