The Board of Trustees on August 24, 1994, approved the establishment of the Ashland County Sports Hall of Fame Scholarship. The Scholarship was appropriately renamed the Bill Mills Scholarship. The Trustees wanted to honor Bill Mills since he was the “Founder of the Hall of Fame,” in 1982, with the first induction in 1984.
The scholarship is awarded each year to qualified student-athletes in Ashland County. The purpose of the scholarship is to assist in deserving high school graduates to further their education. All resident Ashland County senior high school student-athletes are eligible to apply for the scholarship. A scholarship application form has been established by the scholarship committee, which evaluates all candidates and selects the award winners each spring.
