Harold Hayden Memorial Scholarship Fund

March 15, 2013

The Harold Hayden Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 1984 to honor the late Harold Hayden, a former commissioner, from Genesee County, Michigan. Mr. Hayden is nationally recognized as the co-founder of the National Association of Black County Officials (NABCO). He believed that one must be involved in the process of government to help guarantee against discrimination and injustice, which is why the HHMSF is open to all applicants regardless of race, gender or ethnicity. The Scholarship Fund recognizes today’s youth who represent exceptional academic achievement and distinctive personal accomplishments. The National Association of Counties (NACo) and NABCO co-fund this program with sponsorship from various corporations and organizations.
