Oak Hill High School Alumni Association – Robert C. & Birtie Massey Scholarship Fund
The very active Oak Hill/Collins High School Alumni Association has encouraged the formation of a number of scholarship funds that continue to benefit students in southern Fayette County. Robert and Birtie Massey were the parents of nine children who graduated from Oak Hill H.S. “I don’t believe he had a child who could walk in his footsteps,” commented Roy Massey of his father Robert Carter Massey. As a group, however, the living children of Robert and Birtie Bowman Massey have made an enormous footprint in the efforts of the Alumni Assoc. to build scholarship funds for current and future students. Their generous donations created an endowment in memory and loving honor of their parents who strongly believed that an education for their children was very important. Robert Massey wanted his children to have a life that was easier than his own. Additional donations were made in memory of the three deceased sons.
