Glen Oaks athletes receive Jim Bishop Scholarships

Two student athletes at Glen Oaks Community College are recipients of the Jim Bishop Memorial Athletic Scholarship for 2019-20.

Rickey (JoMel) Boyd, of Anderson, Ind., and Clifford (Daniel) Hughley III, of Winter Park, Fla, both play for the Viking Men’s basketball team.

Boyd is in his second year at Glen Oaks working on his Associate of General Studies degree. He plans to transfer to a four-year school to continue his basketball career. His dream job would be to be in the National Basketball Association, but he would also entertain a career in the medical or criminal justice field. Besides sports, Boyd enjoys listening to music and just having a good time. He is a resident assistant in the Devier Student Suites on campus, and he is a member of the Black Student Union and Phi Theta Kappa.

Clifford (Danny) Hughley III, is in his first year at Glen Oaks majoring in Business Management. Upon graduation, he plans to transfer to a four-year university and play basketball while pursuing a bachelor’s degree. He would eventually like to continue his basketball career overseas and/or start his own sports training related business. In addition to basketball, Hughley enjoys hanging out with friends, spending time with family and just enjoying life.


Bishop’s family funded the scholarship to assist athletes in the county to receive an education and play the sport they love at the same time. The Bishop family believes athletics are an important aspect of Glen Oaks and St. Joseph County.


The Jim Bishop Memorial Athletic Scholarship Fund was initially established in 1980 after Bishop’s death from an auto accident. Bishop attended Glen Oaks and he held a special place in his heart for the college and the Athletic Department, as he played on the first basketball teams at the college for Coach Ken Shuler. Bishop was also a coaching assistant for the teams in the 1970’s.
