Riley Gray is in her Junior year at the WVU School of Nursing in Morgantown. When she is home on weekends and during breaks, she works at Raleigh General Hospital as a nursing extern. She enjoys working in women’s services with labor and delivery being her favorite. She has decided to take some extra classes in her free time that will help her specialize in this field so that when she graduates, she will be ready to pursue a job in labor and delivery.
JR has maintained a 4.0 for 3 semesters while in the WVU Tech Civil Engineering program. He was chosen as the Outstanding Freshman Civil Engineering student last year by his professors and was again chosen as the Outstanding Sophomore Civil Engineering student this year as well. He is planning to pursue an internship with a civil engineering company in the summer after his junior year.
JR has been a member of the Young Life ministry group that is on-campus at WVU Tech for the past two years. He was selected to attend the Young Life Discipleship Focus Summer Program in Pigeon Forge, TN this summer that partners with Dollywood/Splash County to build evangelical experiences, work ethic, and leadership abilities. He is also active in his local church, Mt Hope United Methodist Church, running the music and soundboard each week.
JR’s future plans are to reside in or around Fayette County after graduation. “It is through scholarships like those given by MOHO, that I have been able to focus on my studies, and not worry about financial stresses during the school year, so again I say thank you.”

I received two professional degrees in the fields of design, planning, and architecture.Undergraduate: Bachelor of Science, Landscape Architecture at West Virginia University. I went on toget my Master of Architecture at Clemson University.
The WVU landscape architecture program revolved around science. It was engineering-heavy and very technical. The design was practical and functional.
During my undergraduate degree, I worked as an intern at West Virginia University's "Facilities Planning" department. There I worked with architects and landscape architects.
Upon graduation, I moved to Clemson SC to pursue a master's in architecture. This school was more design-heavy and theoretical. I thought this would complement my practical and math-heavy background.
During my studies in graduate school, I got to live, work, and study in Charleston SC for a year. There I received a design-build certificate (designing and building a pavilion for a Montessori school). This certificate allows students to design and build something for the community of Charleston, SC.
Lastly, MOHO was a great benefit to my career. The organization was always extremely kind, and supportive. They were a big support for my career and my confidence as a young adult. Being recognized as a recipient of the MOHO scholarship when I was graduating high school assisted with tuition, books, and more along with giving me confidence I can achieve things upon graduating from high school.
