Billy Cathell McClearn was an exceptional Valley Central varsity athlete and teammate. He played and starred in both basketball and football and was inducted into the Valley Central Athletic Hall of Fame in 2011.

Billy passed away suddenly in 2011 and this scholarship has been established in his memory, by his friends, family , and loved ones. Above all else, Billy touched the lives of his teammates through his passion, spirit and love for competition. Candidates applying for the scholarship, maintained in his memory, should provide the following information along with a 1-2 page essay as indicated below.
