The family of Jim and Mary Jo Wiley has worked with the community to endow a scholarship in their name.
Scholarship will honor Wileys

For 35 years Jim Wiley taught young men in Shelby County baseball and life lessons as the coach of the Shelbyville Post 37 American Legion Baseball team.

And even now as he’s stepping down as coach Wiley will be able to help continue that education and hopefully their baseball careers thanks to a scholarship endowed in his and his wife’s name.

The Jim and Mary Jo Wiley Scholarship Foundation was unveiled Sunday at a banquet honoring the 2014 American Legion Post 37 state championship team and Wiley, who is retiring as the team’s head coach.
