Alumni Association sets up scholarship in memory of local Boy Scout leader

The Pitt Alumni Association has established a scholarship for local Eagle Scouts in honor of Robert I. "Cubby" Bearer, a well-known Boy Scout leader. Bearer, a 1934 physical education graduate of Pitt, worked with boys from economically depressed towns such as Braddock and Rankin.

The scholarship is directed toward youths of Eagle Scout merit who demonstrate financial need. It may be available as early as September 1996.

Persons wishing to contribute to the fund should call the Alumni Association at 624-8229.
