BethAnn McBride Scholarship Established

A new endowment fund, in memory of local resident and educator, BethAnn McBride has been established with the Community Foundation of Washington County.  “The BethAnn McBride Scholarship Fund will support post-secondary scholarships for Washington High School seniors and will be administered through the St. James Foundation,” says CFWC Executive Director, Millie Youngquist. “Anyone may make a tax-exempt donation to this fund and be eligible to receive an Endow Iowa tax credit for their donation.”


Beth was a beloved music educator and school administrator in many schools throughout Iowa. She and her husband Doug made their home in Washington and were active in theater and musical groups in the community.  Beth passed away in April of 2023 after a heroic battle with cancer.
