Nebo Education Foundation has received a donation in memory of Dr. Paul H. Beckstrom. Paul, 83, Spanish Fork, graduated this life Summa Cum Laude on Thursday, October 27, 2011, at the Utah Valley Hospital in Provo, Utah, surrounded by his loving family.

Paul learned the value of hard work at an early age, growing up during the depression. He carried this work ethic with him throughout his life. In preparation for his career as an educator and administrator, Paul attended schools in Spanish Fork and later BYU and earned his Bachelor, Master and Doctorate (Ed D.) degrees. He was employed by the Nebo School District as principal in Benjamin, Lake Shore, Springville, Payson and Spanish Fork. He always made the effort to learn the name of every child in each school.

Donor: Frank & Pat Christianson
