The John Wells Memorial Scholarship was established in memory of John Wells, who was the pitching coach at Muskingum University for 14 years, where he produced several All-Conference performers as well as two All-Americans. He was also the pitching coach for John Glenn High School where he produced many All-MVL performers and Three All-Ohio pitchers.

John always gave his time freely to help young ladies who wanted to improve their softball skills. This scholarship is a way to allow John to continue to help young softball players to reach their goals.

John died while pitching batting practice to the Muskingum team at the Division III World Series in Eau Claire, Wisconsin in 2001. 3 days later, the Muskies brought home their first and only National Championship trophy.

The Scholarship is in its 22nd year, and has helped 42 softball players in a 6-county area.

The purpose is to financially assist students pursuing a higher education. We are seeking individuals who have demonstrated outstanding athletic involvement during their education and exhibit the ability to succeed in completing their higher education.

The one time, non-renewable $1,000 scholarship will be given to outstanding female softball players/managers who are graduates of schools in a six county area including Muskingum, Guernsey, Noble, Perry, Morgan and Coshocton.

A check will be sent directly to the chosen institution and can be used for room, board, tuition, books, lab fees or other incidental costs.
