"K.  Out of this appropriation, $55,000 the first year from the general fund is provided  as a grant to the City of Radford for the completion of a life-sized, bronze statute of Mary Draper Ingles to complete the "Bring Mary Home" project.  The grant must be matched by a like amount from the City of Radford."

(This amendment provides general fund support for a grant to the City of Radford for the "Bring Mary Home" project, which involves the creation of a life-sized bronze statute of Mary Draper Ingles, who escaped abduction by Native Americans and survived a harrowing trek over hundreds of miles of rough terrain to return to Virginia and her family. The City of Radford has already collected $55,000 in private donations for the project.)
