Leon and Nancy Shake Huff were married in June of 1960, and just 13 years later Nancy passed away. Having lost his wife at such an early stage in their marriage, Leon chose to honor her when he was considering decisions about his estate. After Leon’s passing in 2013, the Leon D. and Nancy Shake Huff Scholarship Fund was established from a bequest in his estate to benefit a Sullivan High School graduate planning to study elementary education at ISU. Thanks to Leon Huff’s decision to honor his wife and her love of education, he was able to create a lasting legacy that will benefit Sullivan County students forever.
