Ralph and Mae Decker Scholarship Fund
Ralph Decker was born in Grayson County, Kentucky. He married Mae Stevenson, who was also from Grayson Kentucky. Four years after their marriage, Ralph and Mae moved to Louisville where Ralph worked at Porter’s Paint Company for seven years. The Deckers bought a farm near Hardinsburg where they raised their two daughters. Ralph sold Moorman feed and was a good friend to all. After Ralph’s retirement, he and Mae moved to Salem. Ralph was always interested in children getting a better education that he, as he was unable to go to college. Mae Decker and GleEtta Williams established this fund for Salem High School graduates in the form of scholarships, especially those in the fields of nursing, theology, missionary work or a healthcare related field.
