PHS Class of 1969 creates scholarship honoring Bill McRann

Posted

As a 50-year anniversary project, the Powell High School Class of 1969 is establishing a memorial scholarship fund at Northwest College to honor longtime PHS art instructor Bill McRann.

The Class of 1969 is working through the Northwest College Foundation to create an art scholarship in the name of McRann, who died in 2017. The award would go to a Powell High School art student (or students) to continue their art education at NWC.

The centerpiece of class fundraising for the McRann scholarship fund builds on the craftsmanship of a 1969 PHS graduate who studied under McRann. Custom knife maker Dennis Friedly of Cody has fashioned a “Panther Pride” knife especially for the Class of 1969 project.

Class members will be selling tickets through the summer — with a big push at the annual PHS Alumni Association reunion in July.

The hope is to award the first McRann memorial scholarship to a PHS art student graduating in 2020.
