HORAN Announces Creation of Scholarship Fund

Supports Clients and Four Local Universities

CINCINNATI, Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- HORAN is committed to improving the quality of life in the communities where our employees live and work. To support our goal, HORAN is proud to announce the creation of the HORAN Scholarship Fund to offer scholarships to our client community.

HORAN offers The Jack and Elaine Horan Scholarship at the University of Cincinnati and The Free Throw Scholarship at Xavier University to our clients' employees and their family members, contributing more than $110,000 of scholarship support to over 55 deserving students representing over 25 client companies.  This year, HORAN added additional scholarship opportunities at the University of Dayton and Wright State University to the Fund.  In total, HORAN offers 12 scholarships, three at each institution.

"As our geographic presence continues to expand, so have our scholarship offerings. These scholarships were created to honor full-time students for their hard work, honesty and integrity.  We are proud to be able to expand our support and create a scholarship fund for deserving students in our region," said Terry Horan, President & CEO.

Scholarships' Background:
Jack and Elaine Horan Scholarship: This scholarship was created in 1997 to honor the company's founder and support deserving students at the University of Cincinnati. Jack Horan (1919 –1996), who founded our company in 1948, was a great leader dedicated to hard work, honesty and integrity. Our company's success has been built on the principles for which Jack stood. The Jack and Elaine Horan Scholarship is our way of honoring Jack's legacy.

HORAN Free Throw Scholarship: This scholarship was created in 2005 to honor the principles of both organizations – hard work, honesty and integrity – and to support deserving students at Xavier University. HORAN supports the Xavier University Men's Basketball organization by providing scholarships for students.

Miller/Kreber Scholarship: This scholarship was created in 1997 to honor the parents of Doug and Ann Miller and support deserving students at the University of Dayton. The scholarship has now been added to the HORAN Scholarship Fund. Doug Miller, Executive Vice President of HORAN, and his wife Ann, are 1981 graduates of the University of Dayton. The Millers established the Miller/Kreber Scholarship to honor their parents and their parents' commitment to education.

HORAN Wright State University Scholarship: This scholarship was created in 2013 to honor our partnership with the University and support deserving students at Wright State University. As we continue our expansion into the Dayton market, HORAN has partnered with Wright State University. This new scholarship honors the principles of both organizations, as well, specifically those of hard work, honesty and integrity.

All scholarships are chosen by the universities and are based on academic merit and financial need.
