Ohio State Alumni and Friends Support the Parkway High School Scholarship Fund
In May, two Ohio State alumni were inducted into the Parkway High School Alumni Academic Hall of Fame. Karen Casey and Jim Ripley are both two-time Ohio State graduates who grew up in Mercer County, Ohio. In 2013, Karen was off and running establishing a designated fund and trying to raise scholarship monies for Ohio State students who graduated from her high school. Jim and his wife, Pam, were one of the first to contribute a gift to the fund.
