Brian Holtz Scholarship

This scholarship is named after Brian Holtz, father of current senior, Adam Holtz. Brian died suddenly on March 28th, 2021. 

He was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma at the age of 20. He completed cancer treatment and had gone into remission and was doing well for many years. He met his wife Kelly while they both were attending Northern Kentucky University. During college, Brian and Kelly welcomed their first son Adam into their young family, and five years later, their son Luke. 

If you knew Brian, you knew his love and dedication to his family. His biggest source of pride and accomplishment was being a father to his sons. Brian was a devout Catholic and a model of faith, humility, and service for his children and to others. It was his priority to pass his Catholic faith on to his children. 

Despite looking very healthy and living an active lifestyle, his health issues would eventually creep back into his life; many due to the ravaging effects of cancer treatment.  He was trying to remedy them and live as sustainably as he could, continuing his life with positivity and thankfulness. Many that were close to him did not know of Brian’s complex medical issues, as he never wanted to focus attention on himself. Weeks before he passed away, it was discovered he had emphysema and lung fibrosis resulting from previous radiation, and an extremely rare and incurable disease, called fibrosing mediastinitus. This was growing tissue that wrapped around and compressed his major heart vessels, trachea, and other chest structures. These severe medical complexities, along with others he was trying to manage, led to a sudden and unexpected, catastrophic event. 

Brian’s professional life would come with great success. He was quoted by one of his managers as, “being a leader amongst his peers, sincerely caring about his clients, and always working to better his craft.” Although Brian was very accomplished in his career, the manager wanted to point out that it wasn’t those accomplishments she would remember him by; it was his zest for life, him calling to thank her for hiring him still after 10 years on the job, and simply his smile. 

One coworker described him as elevating and uplifting anyone around him, and another stated, “you just don’t meet many people in this world like Brian.” His disposition with others was so highly regarded, that his legacy was sure to be honored through the creation of this scholarship. The driving force and organizer was through fellow Investment Adviser at 5/3 Bank, Joe Nadeau.  They held a Memorial golf outing for Brian on August 30th, 2021, at Pinnacle Golf Club in Grove City, OH. Through the generosity of Fifth Third bank, employee contributions were matched 100%.

With the timing of Brian’s death just as his son Adam was entering into his senior year of high school, Fifth Third wanted to award Adam with the inaugural contributions. Adam is now a Sophomore at the University of Kentucky following in his father's footsteps studying Economics and Finance.  The Brian Holtz Memorial Scholarship has continued on into it second year and was awarded to another student that has suffered through the unimaginable and devastating tragedy of losing a parent. 

May Brian’s memory serve the recipient of this scholarship, with the wisdom of utmost dedication to family, encouragement to work to their best ability in the toughest of times, humility, deepening their relationship with God, and promoting interaction with others with kindness, positivity, and love.

The Chad Hodson Memorial Scholarship

Hannah.jpg

This scholarship began as a way to pay tribute and to carry on the legacy of a great fiend, husband, father and coworker.  Chad grew up in the small town of Leesburg, OH and met the love of his life, Jana at a young age. They went to grade school and high school together, but it wasn’t until their circle of friends started hanging out together that they realized they were meant for each other.

After high school graduation, Chad and Jana went to Ohio University in Athens together where they graduated, married and moved to Charleston, WV in 2002 where Chad had a job with a minor league baseball team. They lived there from 2002-2006. Their oldest child, Hannah was born there.  Chad had his dream job working in baseball. The front office of a baseball team wasn’t quite the job for a family. In 2006, the Hodson family moved back to our hometown and Chad began working with Fifth Third Bank. In 2007 our son Dane was born and 2011 our daughter Landyn.   Chad always worked very hard and rose the ranks at the bank and in 2009 was promoted to Investment Executive with Fifth Third Securities, Inc. As an Investment Executive, Chad flourished earning the respect of his clients and coworkers. He qualified for the annual sales conference every year and remained in that position with his Fifth Third partner Jeff Myers. 

 

When not talking about creating investment plans and strategies, Chad was either talking about sports or his kids. Chad loved basketball, baseball and golf. He coached basketball and baseball teams before his children when they were old enough to play basketball, baseball, softball, and soccer teams He was a big fan of The Ohio state Buckeyes, Cincinnati Reds and Bengals and loved UNC Tar Heels. His greatest hobby that started as a senior in high school was golf, which he wishes he had started at a younger age.

 

Chad loved me and his kids with everything he had. Chad also was a big family man and enjoyed spending time with both sides of our family.  Chad made it evident throughout His life who his ultimate teammate was and that was Jesus. He loved the Lord and allowed God to use him with adults and kids.  Chad was the same man no matter if he was at home, work, coaching, church, in the community or out with friends.  

 

Chad’s quick wittedness, his smile, sense of humor, love of his wife and children and his incredible strong faith in Jesus will always be missed but never forgotten. Chad lost his fight with cancer November 28, 2019, but his story is not yet completed. This scholarship was created to assists in helping his children and others who lost a parent in high school to fulfill their dreams and live their best life. Chad was passionate about education as so is his wife Jana, who is a teacher in the Fairfield Local School District. This passion for education in the Hodson family is what spurred the idea for this scholarship.

 

The Inaugural Chad Hodson Memorial Scholarship was presented to the most deserving high school senior at Fairfield Local High School, his daughter, Hanna Hodson who will be pursing a degree in Nursing at Liberty University in Virginia.
