Bette Davis Scholarship Fund

In recognition of the love and admiration shared by the many students, co-workers and friends who were touched by her endless love and boundless energy, the Bette Davis Scholarship Fund is established in her name to assist worthy Fort LeBoeuf students attain their educational goals.
You are cordially invited to participate by contributing to the fund and by getting the word out to your classmates.
The Planning Committee has put together a CD to be sent to anyone who contributes at least twenty dollars to the scholarship fund. Lois Byers Hamilton had occasion to interview Ma before her death and ask her about some of the interesting events that took place at school. The discussion includes a description of the Late Charlie Bowman's chicken plucking machine and of the time the ceiling came down on a visiting dignitary from Harrisburg. The CD also includes many delicious recipes which Ma brought from West Virginia, and lastly, a rendition of "Down Yonder."
500 CD's have been ordered. $25,000 is needed in order to maintain an annual $1,000 scholarship. That means that we need to average $50 per CD if we are to reach our goal.
Contributions should be made payable to:
The Fort LeBoeuf School District Foundation
Be sure to include your name and address so the CD may be sent to you. Also, mark on your check that the money is for the "Bette Davis Scholarship Fund."
