William Ray Judah Scholarship

The William Ray Judah Scholarship was established in 1986 by Mrs. Del Judah in honor of her late husband. William Ray Judah loved young people and spent his life devoted to helping them achieve success. He volunteered his time as a coach for boys and girls basketball at Hickman High School and aided many other children and young people through his special gifts of time and financial resources. He was an active member of the community of Hickman, Nebraska, and served as mayor. Even though he passed away in 1966, his memory lives on in the Hickman community and in the students who have benefited from this generous scholarship.
