The John D. (“Doc”) Holladay Culinary Arts Scholarship was established by John D. Holladay. John was born in McComb, Ohio in 1941 to Wilma and Carl Holladay. He graduated from McComb High School and attended Henry Ford College. In 1959, John joined the United States Air Force, where he served for 4 years as an Air Policeman. John also served with the US Navy in Guantanamo Bay from 1966-1968. Following John’s time in the service he moved to Alabama, where he lived for 32 years until coming back to McComb in 2008. John has fond memories of cooking in the kitchen with his mother as a child and is very passionate about culinary arts. The purpose of this scholarship fund is to assist a Hancock County graduate who is pursuing a career in the culinary arts.
