George William “Bill” Hartzell was instrumental in continuing the Hartzell family businesses in Piqua for many years, and was a major supporter of the Piqua community. Mr. Hartzell passed away on April 30, 2016; a bequest made as a result of his estate planning will allow the fund to financially continue his generosity to the community.
Beginning in May 2017, the fund has made scholarships available to worthy local students attending institutions of higher learning. Eligible students must have lived within the Piqua School district during high school, graduated from Piqua High School, or be a child or grandchild of an employee of Hartzell Industries.
