This scholarship was established in honor of James “Jamie” J. Hosford ‘77 and Gloria Hosford’s family to continue their legacy and passion for athletics, Grand Valley Statue University and their community. Hosford was an All-American football player and wrestler. He is a charter member of the GVSU Football Alumni Association and has served as the president. A strong supporter of alumni programs, Hosford helped lead the Capital Campaign for the Alumni House in Allendale in 1998.
