The endowed scholarship fund was established in 1996 by William F. Beher and Linda Beher Richards. The annual scholarship award will be given to a graduate of Rushville Consolidated High School with preference given to a graduate student in the field of elementary education. If there are no graduate students in the field of elementary education, the scholarship may be awarded to an undergraduate student in the field of elementary education who is above a sophomore level in college.
