The Boise-Eliot/Humboldt (BEH) PTA is excited to support the Betty Campbell/Jeanette Crawley (BCJC) Scholarship Fund.
The BCJC Scholarship Fund awards applicants who are Oregon residents, graduates of Boise-Eliot Elementary School and who will be enrolling/are enrolled in an Oregon two or four year college/university. Recipients are awarded a minimum of $500 and maximum of $10,000 (highest award has been $7,000 to date).
This scholarship fund was founded in 1991 by longtime, beloved Boise-Eliot principal Betty Campbell in honor of her friend Jeanette Crawley, a fellow educator who was killed in an automobile accident at age 35. It was renamed the Betty Campbell Jeanette Crawley Scholarship Fund in 2015 to honor both educators and provide a legacy for their caring commitment to inner-city Portland children. For over 25 years the main goal of this organization has been to provide increased opportunities for BEH students through higher-education scholarships. Funds are raised through involved individuals, groups and foundations.
