Dr. Charles Diss, Class of 1897, left an endowment earmarked for athletics/recreation. Over the years the fund grew and became known as 'The Diss Fund'. This fund helped to finance Ilion's athletic complex which was constructed in the 1980s. The complex was named in honor of the doctor and is known as The Diss Memorial Athletic Complex'.


Through the generosity of Ilion Class of 1938 Alumni, Constantine 'Gus' Panarites and Mary Panarites Gasper, the Ilion Central School District Foundation is offering a new annual $1000 scholarship. The recipient must be a graduate of Ilion High School and have been awarded a four year undergraduate degree. He/She must be accepted or already attending a certified medical school. Inquiries about the scholarship can be made to the Superintendent of Schools at 894-9934.


Dr. Jeffrey Seymour

A scholarship to honor Ilion alumnus, the late Dr. Jeffrey J. Seymour, Class of 1983, has been established by family members and friends and will be administered by theFoundation. The award will be presented to a graduating senior, who is a science major, with high family and social values. Dr. Seymour, 31, resided in Ilion with his wife Pina and was the son of Alfred & Patricia Seymour, of Ilion. On January 6, 1997, Dr. Seymour, who was chief resident at Albany Medical Center, died in an automobile accident on Rt. 28, south of Mohawk. Contributions can be submitted to the Foundation at 6 Weber Avenue, Ilion. Donations should be earmarked for this fund.


Class of 1936 alumnus - Dr. Theodore Carney's legacy was siring nine children and delivering many more babies who grew up to graduate from Ilion High School. He eagerly embraced new technologies, (ie. installed home intercom system, listened to his Hi-Fi stereo, used an air horn to call kids home for supper, built an 8mm home movie library, experimented with a Polaroid camera and watched 'Bonanza' on his 13 channel-COLOR TV!). If he were alive today, perhaps he'd be a Net Head too! However, this would happen only if he could use a laptop computer, on the 19th hole of the golf course!

This web site is dedicated in loving memory of my dad, Dr. Ted Carney.
