During Homecoming 1995 members of the New Castle High School Class of 1950 discussed the possibility of establishing a scholarship fund at New Castle High School in memory of classmates. The subject continued to be discussed among a core group from the class until early in 2000 when plans were being made for a 50th class reunion as part of Homecoming 2000. Eleven members of the NCHS Class of 1950 decided to be the founding donors. The Endowment Fund for the scholarship became a reality on August 29, 2000.
