A former longtime employee of Ohio State Lima and her Ohio State University Alumni husband are helping make sure that students have the money to get a Buckeye education. 

During the OSU Lima retiree dinner, it was announced that Vic and Judy Von Blon made a 50 thousand dollars gift to set up an endowment scholarship fund.  Judy worked at the university for 33 years and was a huge supporter of the students at the Lima Campus and Vic worked as an optometrist in Saint Marys for 42 years.  Unfortunately, Judy couldn’t make it Friday night, but Vic says their gift follows Woody Hayes’ philosophy “To pay it forward.”

Vic Von Blon said,   “It was do to the motivation that I got from last falls scholarship dessert.  They had a scholarship dessert for all of the recipients at the Lima Club last fall and I was so impressed how appreciative and grateful the scholarship recipients were and that was just the motivation."
