Now you Know...The
answer to last week's question: Claude Bundrick was the lovable
character who drove his tractor to town each day and has a road
named after him! I heard from the grand prize winner, Harold
B., that he disassembled the old stage wait station back in 1987!
I love hearing these stories! I'd love to hear about
Mr. Bundrick's words of wisdom!
Did you Know...In 1976, a wonderful couple in Blythewood
graduated from Hanberry High School at the ages of 73 and 66, after
putting their 8 children through college. The family later
established an educational scholarship for disadvantaged
students in honor of their parents who valued education and were
pillars of the community and their church! Who were these
wonderful members of our community?
to our National History Bee participant, RSD2 Retirees,
Microsoft Certification and Art Award winners! Many
Blythewood students finished from numerous colleges or were on the
Dean's list! And a big salute to the many cadets who
participated in the JROTC Cadet Leadership challenge! Blythewood
has it all!
