Max and Phyllis Hinkle Scholarship Fund
This fund was established in December, 2010 by Max and Phyllis Hinkle. The purpose is to provide a scholarship to a Salem High School graduate who plans to attend the School of Business at Indiana University.
Max said they started the fund for several reasons, but mainly because he felt the scholarship would be a good thing for Washington County and for a student who wanted to further their education at IU.
When asked how he wants future generations to remember him, Max said, “As a guy from Salem who went out into the business world and found some success and is now sharing that with a worthy student and the Washington County Community Foundation.”
