Wi-Hi Alumni Hoping To Give Back To Students

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Pete Evans is a proud Wicomico High School alum, and still looks good wearing his class of 1961 letterman's jacket.

"It certainly does, good fit too," he said.

He along with dozens of classmates have formed a committee, to oversee their scholarship fund, through the Community Foundation. They've set up an endowment, with a goal of reaching $10,000. So far they have about $8,800.

"Once they have $10,000, that will spin off about $500 a year, forever," said BJ Summers, with the Community Foundation.

When can students start applying for this scholarship money? There is a bit of a wait. It will be about a year, before income from the interest becomes available.

"Hopefully if everybody gives just a little bit of money, we'll have some money in the scholarship fund and help out the kids coming behind us," said Evans.

He says a Class of 1961 Birthday Reunion Party is in the works. He's hoping the big bash will rake in some much needed cash for the Home Of The Indians.

Since this scholarship is still in the works, there is no deadline. However, they are now accepting donations, which can be sent to the Community Foundation.
