Wisehart Remembers Alma Mater
Class of 1947
April 12, 2012
In October 2011, we received notice that Mr. Max Wisehart, a 1947 graduate
of Sheldon High School, passed away on September 18, 2011, in the state of
California. We were notified that Mr. Wisehart remembered his alma mater
as a beneficiary.
We received notice last week that the Max Wisehart 2011 Living Trust had
been brought to a close. Mr. Wisehart left Sheldon High School 75% of his
remaining assets after payment of taxes and expenses. As a result, we
received a check in the amount of $262,195.73 as a beneficiary of the
trust established by Mr. Wisehart.
The Sheldon R-VIII Board of Education will be making the decision on how
to best utilize the money that was left to the school. At this point, no
decisions have been made other than to deposit the money in the bank.
It is really touching to know that Mr. Wisehart had such fond memories of
his high school that he remembered the school in his will. We should be
very grateful for his generosity.
