Charles H. and Orene C. Hinds - Odell, Nebraska

The Charles and Orene Hinds – Odell, Nebraska, High School Scholarship Program was established in 1990.

He retired in 1968 as vice president and trust officer of the National Bank of Commerce. Orene was a seamstress and was later employed by a local department store, hospital and hatchery. Orene passed away in 1995, and Charles followed in 2000.
