The Bryan G. Heffinger Sr. Memorial Scholarship was started in July 2017 by his seven children in loving memory of their father who passed away in July 2016.

Mr.  Heffinger was one of the original members of the Mahoning County Saddle Horse Committee, and a great and loyal advisor of the Mahoning County Conquistadors 4-H club.  He was a Struthers High School graduate. Bryan proudly served his country in the U.S. Army as a combat engineer. He worked for the Edward J. DeBartolo Corporation for over 40 years as maintenance supervisor. After retiring, he worked at Dickey Electric for 3 years.

He was an avid fan of the San Francisco 49ers, NASCAR, and John Deere. He enjoyed a good fish fry, and was a member of the Lowellville Rod and Gun Club and the American Legion. Bryan was also very active in his church, the Zion Lutheran Church in New Middletown.
