Lydian Bush Memorial Scholarship
A graduate of Lawrence College and Wisconsin University, Miss Lydian Bush taught Latin at Aberdeen’s Weatherwax High School from 1916 until her retirement in 1947. She was respected by faculty and students alike for her quality teaching, high standards, and friendly manner.
The 1947 Quinault yearbook predicted that her life – described as an “example of gracious living” – would be remembered “long after `Veni, Vidi, Vici’ sinks into the bottomless pit of once-remembered but now-forgotten knowledge.”
The Lydian Bush Memorial Scholarship was established in 2001 by one of Miss Bush’s students from the 1920s who, nearly 80 years later, still vividly remembers her as both an excellent teacher and a good friend.
The scholarship is open to all applicants who satisfy the general eligibility requirements of the Scholarship Program.
