Gary & Marlene Beard Athletic Scholarship Fund

By the time May 9, 2014 arrived, the surprise event, "Operation Code Purple" had been successfully kept a secret from the honorees and namesakes of the Gary and Marlene Beard Athletic Scholarship Fund. A fitting tribute to who many see as Lakeview School Districts, "First Couple." No matter what event you go to - football, basketball, baseball, soccer, wrestling or golf... just to name a few... you will probably hear Gary and Marlene in the crowd yelling, "Go Lakeview!"

Jean Creech Shear Art Fund

Although Jean Creech Sheer didn't choose art as a career, it choose her... A chance encounter with art in grade school started a love and participation in art that carried her throughout her life including the more than 10 pastels she painted during her time at the nursing home until her passing November of 2015. For Jean, art was love, encouragement and beauty. Jean enjoyed taking and looking at pictures, quilting, drawing, collecting Hallmark Christmas ornaments, puzzles, coin collecting, crafts and holiday decorating. Mrs. Shear was also an active member of the Lakeview PTA. This fund, established by her children, celebrates her life and the power of art and will provide support to Lakeview School District students who, through this fund, just may have their own chance encounter with art and fall in love with it as she did.
