The Adams County Medical Foundation presented a $1,000 Dr. Dale Mathias Memorial Scholarship to Alyson Rogers, from Winchester, who is pursuing a degree in Premed/Biology at Morehead State University. Alyson is a 2020 graduate of North Adams High School and Southern State Community College where she earned an Associate Degree of Science. The Dr. Dale Mathias Memorial Scholarship was established in 2019 by his children, Christopher, Melissa, and Matthew, to honor the memory of their father who served as a physician in Adams County for over 35 years. Dr. Mathias started his career in Adams County as a member of the National Health Service Corp. He worked at the Peebles Family Health Center, Scioto Memorial Hospital, Eagle Creek Nursing Center, Hillcrest Nursing Home and Adams County Hospital. He was often the doctor you would see in the Adams County Emergency Room. Many in the community knew him as “Doc”. Dr. Mathias valued the role that he played in saving lives. He was faced with many life and death situations and he understood that God would guide the outcome, but it was his role to use his skills and do his best to help as much as he could. He valued his role as a teacher to share with other his knowledge and experience.
