|Robert Taylor, film hearthrob and matinee idol of Hollywood's yesteryear, is being honored in his home town of Beatrice, Nebraska with a scholarship created in his name.
PRESS RELEASE -- For immediate distribution.
For information: Dr. C. T. Frerichs, 402-223-3442, or Mickey Gleason, 402-228-2484
ROBERT TAYLOR SCHOLARSHIP
The fund-raising committee for the Robert Taylor Scholarship with the Beatrice Educational Foundation has reached its $50,000 minimum goal, according to chairman Dr. C. T. Frerichs.
In six months, a number of individuals from Beatrice [NE] and elsewhere have contributed more than $50,000, while other donations are expected soon from Taylor's son and Taylor's current biographer, Jane Ellen Wayne, author of the one book thus far published on his life.
Named after the 1929 Beatrice [NE] High School graduate originally known as Spangler Arlington Brugh, who became a movie star from the 1930s to the 1960s, the scholarship is intended to assist a qualifying student each year.
The interest from the endowment principal will be awarded each year to a student pursuing a course of study in the fine arts, including communications, English, journalism, music and theater, who enrolls in any public or private college.
In the event no students in any given year qualify in the fine arts, then those pursuing any other course of study in elementary and secondary education will be eligible, followed by those pursuing careers in health care and medicine.
Selection factors to be considered by the BEF Grants and Awards Committee shall be ranking among the top 50 percent of the graduating class, participation in school and community activities and citizenship.
Persons wishing to contribute to the fund may contact Dr. Frerichs at 402-223-3442 or Beatrice Educational Foundation board member Mickey Gleason at 402-228-2484 for more information. Contributions are tax-deductible.
Checks should be made out to the Beatrice Educational Foundation and sent with a letter stipulating that the donation is for the Robert Taylor Scholarship to Christopher J. Nelson, secretary-treasurer, Beatrice Educational Foundation, 320 N. Fifth St., Beatrice, NE 68310. His office phone number is 402-223-1500.
