The family of Jamie Mills established this scholarship in 2018 in honor of their brother. A statement from Jamie’s sibling states, “Jamie Mills graduated from Gallia Academy High School in 1979. He played football and wrestled and his love of sports continued long after high school. Jamie moved to Florida in his early 20’s but loved coming home to Gallipolis to visit friends and family. We, his family, feel fortunate to help GAHS students in memory of Jamie.”
