Long-time BHS German teacher and Batesville native Andy Koors not only made an impact on his
students during his years of teaching, he ensured that legacy would live on when he arranged for a substantial bequest to be made to BCEF upon his death. While his unexpected passing in 2017 was difficult for the entire BCSC community, it enabled the foundation to establish a program in his honor.
In 2018, BCEF instituted a new program which partially funds the program fees of up to two BHS students who are chosen by Indiana University to participate in their honors program in foreign language.
2019 marks the second year of this program.
Congratulations to our 2019 winners, Charlie Laymon and Casey Werner!
In addition to the study abroad program, BCEF has also donated $25,000 to the Batesville Community School Corporation to transform the old BHS wrestling room into a multi-purpose Bulldog Room — a place where Bulldogs young and old can meet and network.
