Bill and Ruth Hanesworth Scholarships 

Bill and Ruth were married in DeWitt in 1959. They raised two daughters, Karen and Lori, in the Central DeWitt Community School District, the same district Ruth graduated from and later taught in for over 30 years. Bill served in the U.S. Navy and was later employed by Chemplex. 

Education and specialized training is so important and hopefully the scholarships will help someone obtain their life’s goals. It is an honor to be able to give back to the community that means so much to our family.
