Going to college or trade school is a dream come true for many of us!

The Bandon Historical Society is sponsoring a “50 Years Later - 2017” scholarship for a deserving, meritorious, in-need student from Bandon High School who has displayed the potential to benefit society by furtherance of their education.   Here’s your opportunity to help!
 
The Bandon High School Class of 2017 will be the beneficiary of this scholarship funded by community supporters.    Any and all supporters who wish to celebrate the education and positive experiences they had while growing up in Bandon are encouraged to participate as well.    The BHS Class of 1967 graduated 50 years ago and is taking the lead by organizing and making donations to the scholarship.    

Parameters for the scholarship are determined by the Bandon Historical Society and Museum Board of Directors who will make the presentation at the June 2017 graduation exercises.     Since you’re donating to a non-profit your donation is tax deductible.    
 
A lot has happened in the past 50 years at Bandon High School.    The building that the students went to classes in burned to the ground in 1974.    A new school, new gymnasium, new athletic fields and stadiums have replaced the facilities.    It’s a new world with new challenges out there.    This is your opportunity to help young people equip  themselves for the challenges ahead!
 
An anonymous donor has committed to cover fundraising costs so that means 100% of your donation goes to this scholarship.    Fifty Years Later is about people who want to give back to the community and provide assistance to others!

The deadline for donations for this year's scholarship is May 1.

Please let us know if you have any questions!

You can also mail donations to BHS 50 Years Later Scholarship 2017, c/o Bandon Historical Society, P. O. Box 737, Bandon, Oregon  97411

This yearbook photo is of a group of young men who made up the cross country team in the fall of 1966 that took 2nd place at the district meet. Mickey Hurley was in the first year of the 25 years he spent in education at Bandon. The next year, along with Ken Butler, he started a wrestling program at Bandon High School where he would teach and coach until retirement. In 2011 Mickey was inducted into the Oregon Wrestling Hall of Fame for his many years of service to the youth of Bandon and elsewhere across the state. If you were to talk to Mickey today guaranteed he will tell you about the kids he coached who have kids that are wrestling today. And always when he talks of their successes he’s proudest of their academic success and what they’ve done to contribute to society.

Please join Mickey as someone who has proven to follow up on words with actions. Your tax deductible contribution to the Bandon Historical Society 50 Years Later Scholarship by donating here at GoFundMe or by mailing your check to 50 Years Later Scholarship, c/o Bandon Historical Society, P. O. Box 737, Bandon, Oregon 97411 is greatly appreciated!

Bandon rebuilt a new high school after this 1974 fire that destroyed the school that everyone attended in the 1950's and 1960's. While the physical building is gone the memories live on. Tuition for a full year's study at college is now approaching $12,000 per year, if you remember what it was like when you graduated and how it would have been nice to have some help, consider contributing to this scholarship. It's tax deductible and will help a young person get a good start!
