The Meridian School District community lost a long time member, Brian Evans, on Easter morning April 12th 2020. His family, wife Connie and children Brianna and Dan, would like to honor him through the Brian Evans Memorial Scholarship fund. As a life-long learner and advocate for civic duty and for higher education, Brian’s wish was to support students with an interest in sustainable housing and building design. The scholarship will be awarded to student(s) demonstrating leadership in their community and an interest in sustainable building in one of the following fields:
- Engineering or engineering technology

Recently we received $25,000 from the Horn Foundation. This is to be utilized creating another endowment for the MPSF.
Thomas Horn (1894-1995) was a local businessman and philanthropist. He established department stores throughout the northwest, the flagship store-Horn’s Department Store-having been located in Bellingham, on Cornwall Avenue. Upon Mr. Horn’s death, the Thomas & Martina Horn Foundation was created, to provide support to human services and education institutions in the local communities. This support has been in the form of basic needs like food, shelter, and medical services, or providing funds to many worthy organizations to help meet our community’s needs. In total, the Horn Foundation has distributed more than $6,000,000 since the late 1990s. The MPSF has been distributing scholarships from the Horn Foundation since 2006. With this latest donation the MPSF will be able to carry on the Horn tradition in perpetuity.
This year’s event was a great one! We had about 25 teams come out to play and, despite cloudy weather, a good time was had by all! There were a lot of great prizes awarded and drawn for. Hope to see you there next year!!!
