The Helen Frank-Roush Scholarship was founded in 2004 to commemorate Helen Frank-Roush, one of the early women graduates of Ripley High School, in Ripley, Ohio to attend college. Since 2004, twelve scholarships have been awarded to well-qualified young women graduating from RULH High School in Southwestern Ohio.
The Helen Frank-Roush Scholarship website has evolved significantly over the years. Brian Mueller designed the current version in 2014 and updated it significantly in 2016. The current HFR Scholarship logo was designed by Julie Hill.
