  • Scholarship Description
  • The Richardson Family Scholarship was established in 1989. In 1950, Harry Richardson was appointed postmaster of Broken Bow, Nebraska, by President Harry S. Truman. It was an honor he held until his retirement in 1987. Harry grew up in Broken Bow and graduated from high school in 1940. He attended the University of Nebraska both before and after his service during World War II in the Burma India China theatre. He married Lenora McCarty in 1951, a 1941 graduate of Broken Bow High School. Harry emphasized to young people that the way to success is through an education. Life-long residents of Broken Bow, Harry and Lenora dedicated their lives to their family and community. They were the parents of four children and became benefactors to hundreds of students who have reaped the rewards from the Richardsons’ generosity. Lenora passed away in 1996, and Harry followed her in 2004.
