Remembering Dr. Homer F. Mincy

Dr. Homer Mincy was the Superintendent of Upper Arlington Schools from 1972 until his retirement in 1993. In 1985, Dr. Mincy and his administration realized the need for our school district to seek alternative funding sources. In order to support the students through swiftly changing economic, social and technological conditions, Dr. Mincy along with Upper Arlington community leaders, created the Upper Arlington Education Foundation. The UA+Ed was permanently structured to provide support to our district then, now, and in the future. Upon his retirement, the Homer F. Mincy Endowment Fund was established to support professional development of school district staff.

Dr. Homer Mincy passed away on October 28, 2020. The Upper Arlington Education Foundation is honored to have been founded by Dr. Mincy and is proud to continue his vision to support the Upper Arlington Schools. To read more about his life, please click here.
