Beckley Fund


Boonsboro Elementary School is one of a few elementary schools that has an endowment fund established to support cultural activities for students.

The fund was established in 1996 to honor Joanne Beckley who served as secretary at the school for fifteen years (1979-1994).   Joanne loved music, art, learning about other cultures and she had an unconditional love for all students at BES.

The endowment is under the care of The Community Foundation of Washington County. The interest generated from the account is awarded to the school to provide cultural awareness, cultural exchange programs, music programs and resource people.
