Athletics Establishes Tim Hickman Scholarship Endowment

COLUMBIA, Mo. – In honor of longtime staff member Tim Hickman, the University of Missouri Department of Athletics is establishing a scholarship in his name through the Tiger Scholarship Fund, Director of Athletics Desireé Reed-Francois announced.

Hickman, who is retiring from his position as Deputy Athletics Director/Chief Financial Officer, on Friday, Jan. 14, 2022, has spent over 30 years working for Mizzou Athletics.
