The SHP Josh Gentry Memorial Scholarship is awarded each year to two bright, young freshman entering the University of Cincinnati College of Engineering and Applied Science. Josh was a passionate, hardworking engineer, and we believe remembering him in this way will help future engineers focus on their talents and remember each day is a gift.
