The Class of 1947 certainly has made its mark on Shelby High School (SHS) and the Shelby community. They were the very first class to win the Northern Ohio League Football Championship, and they can be credited by starting the well-loved SHS homecoming celebration, a tradition that still continues today.

Upon realizing the nurturing in their formative years from parents, teachers and the community was exceptional; they felt the need to pay it forward. At their 40th class reunion, the Class of 1947 voted to leave a long-lasting legacy to the community by establishing a scholarship to a well-deserving high school senior through a trust fund. The first scholarship was awarded in 1997. Over the last 17 years, the Class of 1947 has awarded over $58,000 to Shelby Seniors.

This year, class trustees have made a permanent decision to use their fund to establish the Class of 1947 Educational Scholarship at the Shelby Foundation to ensure their legacy continues in perpetuity. By depositing the trust with the Shelby Foundation, the Class of 1947 has safeguarded their wishes that the funds be managed confidently and wisely and that scholarships be awarded to well-deserving seniors.

The Shelby Foundation is honored to manage the Class of 1947’s scholarship fund. Carrie Kemerer, director, stated, “The Class of 1947 is very loyal to Shelby High School and the Shelby Community. They understand philanthropy and helping others. It is ideal that they turned to the Shelby Foundation to see their wishes continue because that is why the Foundation is here in this community.”

To become a donor or for more information about the Shelby Foundation, contact Carrie Kemerer, director, at 419-342-3686 or email to: carrie@theshelbyfoundation.org or visit www.theshelbyfoundation.org.
