Gates Foundation Scholarship Fund helps students realize their ambitions

Latest class of 18 Ross County students is named; 5 members of original class earn college degrees

Dreams and aspirations continue to become realities for Ross County students, thanks to the vision and ongoing generosity of a local couple.

This year’s recipients of The Gates Foundation – Ross County Scholar’s Fund were introduced during a ceremony in Ohio University-Chillicothe’s Bennett Hall on Tuesday, June 17. Eighteen students received the scholarships, including 7 new recipients and 11 continuing students.

In 2004, Chillicothe native Larry A. Gates and his wife, Mary, established the scholarship fund to pave the way to a college education for students graduating from Ross County high schools. This is the fifth class to benefit from the scholarship fund, which will eventually total approximately $10 million.

Through the years, 74 scholarships, with a value of $230,000 have been awarded to 35 deserving young people.
