According to co-workers, "Auntie Bea" was like family to many, beloved by everyone, very kind, and full of energy. Although she retired from Harper Creek in 1978, her unwavering devotion to projects that benefitted Harper Creek and area youth continued and added greatly to the district far beyond those 22 years. The establishment of the Beatrice B. Forward Memorial Fund continues her presence at Beadle Lake and other elementary schools in the district which is of no surprise to those who knew her. Upon hearing about the fund and who it helps, a co-worker stated with certainty, "that sounds like Bea."

In 2015, the Connie Amos/Orville E. Strang Vocal Music Scholarship Fund was established as a combined fund to address and promote vocal excellence and instruction.

Connie Amos was a young woman who loved singing and loved being a member of the Battle Creek Community Chorus.

Paul A. Riegle Scholarship Fund

In the fast-paced world we live in, slowing down to spend quality time with friends can often get missed. However, for Paul A. Riegle, taking time out for friends was a characteristic you could always count on. That's why it's more than fitting when the family of Paul A. Riegle established the Paul A. Riegle Scholarship Fund in 2016, allowing Paul to continue to take time out for and support "a friend". Paul was a family-oriented and well-rounded person, valuing service, education, business and the trades while at the same time loving and enjoying the majestic beauty of the outdoors through many of his favorite pastimes such as skiing, hunting and fishing. Through the establishment of this fund, it is the family's hope that it will contribute in meaningful ways towards a better life for the recipient and their family.
