Thanks to the leadership and support of member clubs and the business community, The Presidents Club of Dayton established its first scholarship for a Sinclair Community College student in 1990, naming it after former The Presidents Club of Dayton President Virgil C. Kitchen who passed away shortly after his many years of service to the organization.
A second scholarship was started in 2005 and dedicated to Mildred C. “Millie” Sadauskas, who served more than 30 years as the organization’s administrative secretary. She retired from service in 2013.
A third scholarship began in 2008 and was named for Robert T. Leibold, a two-time President of the organization and one of the longest-serving volunteers in the organization’s history.
The organizations fourth scholarship was started by the board in 2015 and was named for Phillip L. Parker, a Past President of The Presidents Club of Dayton and an active volunteer since the early 1980's.
Students receive their scholarships based on academics, financial need and their active participation in community volunteer activities. Funding for the four (4) scholarships comes from the proceeds of the annual Citizen Legion of Honor Award Luncheon and direct donations from member clubs. Since 1990, there have been 46 scholarship recipients. In 2014, the organization celebrated $250,000.00 of educational impact since the inception of these awards.
