We mourn the passing of Mr. Bill Mays, who passed away on Thursday December 4th. Bill Mays was a businessman who was known throughout the state as Indiana’s most successful Black entrepreneur. I approached Mr. Mays nine years ago and told him of our dream to help young men in the city of Indianapolis realize their dream of attending college. Since then, Mr. Mays has donated to our program and many of our young men are in college today thanks to contributions to our program from his corporation Mays Chemical. Mr. Mays legacy will carry on and he will be sorely missed in our community.
