The Andy Koors Legacy Fund has been established using a donation arranged by former Batesville High School German teacher Andrew “Andy” Koors before his untimely death in February.
Koors, a Batesville native and BHS alumnus, was the BHS German teacher for 33 years. After his passing, BCEF was informed that he had arranged for the proceeds from one of his life insurance policies to be donated to the foundation in the case of his death. His family had also asked for individual donations in his memory to be donated to the education foundation.
BCEF’s task now is to utilize that money in ways that reflect his commitment to our mission. One way to do that, the BCEF board has decided, is to establish an Andy Koors Legacy Fund with some of the money. That money will be used in a way yet to be determined, but it will most certainly focus on his love of foreign language and how he would have wanted us to help students. Details will be announced in the fall.
