Class of 1969 Scholarship Fundclass of 69 yearbook image

Giving back to the community by assisting our future leaders.   Susan Koering, Class of 1969

By awarding a high school student a family scholarship each year I have seen the impact this has made on their lives.  This has brought me to bringing forth the idea for our class to make this also happen. The classes of 1945, 1946, 1954, and 1974 each have one in place.  I have seen the smiles and appreciation on their faces when their name is called at the high school recognition night in May each year.

How can this happen? The Brainerd Public Schools Foundation (BPSF) has endowments for this purpose. A few classmates have met to review this process. If we can raise $12,500 by late 2018 we can award our first scholarship of $500 to a student the year of our 50th class reunion. How nice this would be.  A time to pay it forward.  Donations are tax-deductible. DONATE NOW!
