The purpose of this fund is to provide funding for the Oak Hill Athletic Department including, but not limited to, uniforms, gear, and safety equipment for all Oak Hill sports.
The Oak Hill Athletics Endowment fund was started in 2011 by Ryan Fagan, Oak Hill’s athletic director, in order to give financial support to Oak Hill Athletics for funding for its programs.
“In the past 6 to 8 years, school funding has been cut nationwide,” said Ryan Fagan. “This fund gives people from the community the opportunity to bridge the gap of revenue lost in our area.”
Ryan has been around Oak Hill athletics since the 70’s when his dad was involved, and then when he attended and graduated from the school. His experience with the program and his love for the students and the community has created a passion in Ryan to see Oak Hill Athletics succeed.
“Athletics offer a lot to kids,” said Fagan. “I hope that every kid, regardless of money, can step in and play.”
This fund can help purchase uniforms and keep the athletes properly equipped. Ryan hopes the fund will continue to grow as well as increase in awareness with alumni.
“I don’t want kids to have to pay, and the way the fund has grown over the past few years has shown that people in the community feel the same way,” said Fagan.
