About Josh Reliford

Josh Reliford was a graduate of Paul G. Blazer High School in Ashland, Kentucky (Class of 2009). Josh always demonstrated a passion for working with children. From helping his mother in the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) nursery to his time working for the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation and Camp Kentahten, Josh was happiest when he was working with kids. Josh passed away in 2018, but his legacy can be seen daily in the lives of the children he impacted and the friends and family inspired by the way he lived his life. We have created this foundation as a means to give back to the community via scholarship awards and donations to organizations committed to advancing the interests of youth.
