Washington High School Class of 1961 Continues to

Invest in the WHS Athletic Program

Pat Thompson and Bob Arthur graduated from WHS in 1961 and 50 years later they still have a passion for their alma mater.  When their reunion was held recently, the class felt it appropriate to add to the endowment fund named for their deceased classmate, The Bob Miles and Family Fund, a fund of the Daviess County Community Foundation.

This designated fund was created in 2000, in memory of Bob Miles, with an initial gift of $5,000 and has grown to a value of over $13,000.  This newest gift will increase the fund value to over $14,000.  Annual income from the fund benefits the Washington Community School Athletic Department.

Mrs. Thompson stated, “The Class of 1961 is proud to be able to contribute to the Bob Miles and Family Fund.  We felt fortunate to celebrate our 50th Reunion and reminisce about our high school years.  We are pleased to know this contribution will help others at WHS and encourage other classes to contribute to the Daviess Community Foundation.”

The WHS Class of 1961 encourages all graduates of Washington High School to remember to support the extracurricular programs in the school system by making a gift to one of the many endowed funds that benefit those programs.  Gifts can be made through estate planning by bequest or gifts of cash, stocks, bonds, securities and real property.  For assistance with a gift or to have your questions answered, please call your local financial advisor or the Daviess County Community Foundation at 812-254-9354.
