As an educator and counselor for the Dayton Public School system, a musician and father, he served as an inspiration to thousands of young people. Although his charm, wit and dedication are missed, his legacy continues in the lives that he has touched as well as through this scholarship.

The Huesman Heart Foundation

The Huesman Heart Foundation is a local charity that is committed to the prevention of heart disease through programs which are designed to educate children. At age 16, Tony Huesman was diagnosed with viral cardiomyopathy, a degenerative heart disease. By the time he was 20, Tony's heart had worn out. On August 30, 1978, Tony received a heart transplant operation at Stanford University Medical Center.
Since then, Tony has returned to Dayton, Ohio where he founded the Huesman Heart Foundation and has raised thousands of dollars for heart healthy educational programs in Dayton area schools. Tony Huesman was the longest living single graft heart transplant. He died Sunday evening, August 9, 2009.
This is our first year being associated with this worthy cause. Please visit the website for information about Heart Healthy Programs. www.huesmanheart.org
