cap and diplomaOur Legacy
MHS 65 Scholarship Program

A group of your classmates feels fortunate for the quality education we received at MHS! We believe it's appropriate to establish a tangible expression of our appreciation. Therefore, in memory of departed classmates and in celebration of achievements of the Moline High School Class of 1965, we, as our Legacy, establish a Scholarship program for MHS graduates who seek to better themselves and to contribute to society. 

We feel so strongly about this program that we've all pledged to economically support our Legacy!

In the coming months, you'll hear more from us, including more "testimonials" on why we've chosen to participate, and, importantly, how you can support this worthy endeavor.

Testimonials

As we approach our 50th Class Reunion, it seems we’re at a point in our lives that much of the “heavy lifting” is behind us. If we’ve been blessed with kids, they’re mostly raised, although whatever their age, our needs to assist in some fashion still seem to arise-- perhaps by our choice?  Many of us are retired, save for doing things we choose/ enjoy.

Along the way, our education and life experiences have taught us important lessons. Increasingly, I find myself asking, “How can I pass along what I feel I’ve learned, to my heirs and to others?" Further, I sincerely believe we received a solid educational foundation at MHS. We’ve individually and collectively built on that foundation to become capable, strong contributors to many facets of society.

If you’re having similar thoughts, please consider joining us to fund this program, for the benefit of our MHS successors, from our Class of caring, contributing individuals! 

--Jon Chapman

As we’ve learned and earned, it seems like now is the time to return.  The solid foundation of a Moline education helped provide the knowledge, skills, and attitude we needed, so it seems right to support those, who like us once, are just starting to build on their Moline foundations.”

--Marie Flatley

While far from what I'd call a “Bible thumper” I do read a devotion or two most days.  A recent one (from the TV famous Duck Commander/Duck Dynasty Happy-Happy-Happy folks) referred to 1 Timothy 6:17-19.

“Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor put their hope in wealth... Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.” (I might add that we each can insert our own definition of rich.)

The MHS '65 Scholarship Legacy program could be considered either a 'pay it forward' or a “pay it backward' endeavor. Either way, it's a somewhat unique opportunity to reach out to others realistically providing a boost to the life journey of a someone we've never met.
