Throughout their lives, Mr. Harry A. Aikey and Mrs. Ruth M. Aikey have assisted individuals who sought out to expand their horizons through higher education studies, especially in areas involving service to others or their community.

This foundation’s purpose is to continue that legacy into the future by helping in the education of future educators.
