Mark P. Bryan Scholarship
Mark P. Bryan graduated from Weatherwax High School in 1941. It was there his youth ended. Shortly after graduation he enlisted in the armed forces to participate in World War II. He thought college could wait. However, he was badly injured in the war and spent most of his life in American Veterans Hospitals.
Mark was caught in a fire in a veterans hospital at American Lake, Washington and as a result of the fire, both legs had to be amputated. A lawsuit ensued and he was awarded a settlement. That settlement has made it possible for Mark to give an ongoing gift to Weatherwax High School students.
His sister, Daisy, chose the scholarship in order to give other students, otherwise unable to go to college, the opportunity that her brother did not have.
