Tim was a 1985 graduate of Shelby Senior High. He was a very driven athlete who competed on both the track and football teams while he held various odd jobs and kept a high GPA.

After high school Tim attended NCTC pursuing a degree in Technical Engineering. He moved to Ashland where he married and had one daughter. His love for sports got him involved in the football and baseball programs at Ashland High School where he held the position of assistant coach for both varsity teams.

During this time, Tim was diagonsed with cancer. After fighting a two year battle, Tim died in June of 1995 at the age of 28. That summer was to be his 10 year class reunion, and Tim's classmates held a golf outing in his memory. It was decided that this would become an annual event to raise money and establish an athletic scholarship. With donations from our class, the community, and local businesses, we hope to continue to provide scholarships for Shelby athletes for many years to come.
