Bill & Carolyn Hayes Scholarship Endowment


The Friends of Bill Hayes Bronze Statue and the “Bill and Carolyn Hayes Scholarship Endowment” fund was created to support the design, creation and erection of a bronze statue in honor of the all-time great, legendary “Hall of Fame” Coach and Athletic Director William "Bill" Hayes, as well as, award scholarships to student athletes.

The proceeds from this fund will support:

  1. All costs associated with the design, creation, and installation of a bronze statue of Coach Hayes.

  2. An endowed scholarship fund in the name of Bill and Carolyn Hayes.

  3. A reserve fund to support the maintenance of the statue.

All donations are tax deductible.

Donors will receive souvenirs based on their level of giving. We appreciate your generosity in this noble effort.

For additional information please contact Donald Evans, Sr., Fundraising Chair at: (919) 877-0505 or email us.
