Dillsboro church donates to Milan Elementary

In memory of retired teacher

(MILAN, Ind.) – Milan Elementary School received a generous donation from a local church on Wednesday. 

92-year-old Dick Ernst attends Hopewell Presbyterian Church in Dillsboro. 

When his wife passed away in 2008 he decided to create a fundraiser to give back to local schools. She was a former school in Ohio who later volunteered at Dillsboro Elementary. 

The church hosts a pancake breakfast at the church every year and then donates funds to Dillsboro Elementary and Milan Elementary. 

Ernst showed up at the school on Wednesday to deliver the donation from the breakfast.

“People have been so generous. It is quite a tribute to the folks of this area of Indiana that they support good causes. If they can’t come to the breakfast they send checks to us,” Ernst told The 812. 

Ernst is a unique story himself. The former Ohio State football and baseball player has been inducted into several Hall-of-Fames. 

He even played softball up until two years ago when he was  90-years-old
