T.D. HUGHES SCHOLARSHIP
More than 30 years ago T.D. Hughes joined the board of the Greater Cincinnati/ Northern Kentucky Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation. He is best known for being a great listener—but beyond that he worked to find a solution to help someone in their time of need.
Whether it was finding a patient a new bed to assist in their care or lending support to a family facing a financial crisis, T.D. has worked tirelessly to connect those who needed help with those who could solve the problem. And as one past board member suggested, he did it with grace and dignity.
T.D. successfully led the merger of the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation and Friends and Families of Hemophilia in 2004. It was at that time that he decided to retire from the Board of Directors. In his honor the Board of Directors created the T.D. Hughes, Jr. Scholarship Fund.
