The Furey Family and the Bethel Park Community Foundation have established this fund for the benefit of one Bethel Park High School senior who is a Special Education student and will be attending a TRADE or TECHNICAL SCHOOL after graduation from high school.

Scott Beynon Memorial Scholarship
The Scott Beynon Memorial Scholarship was established in August 2018 when the Bethel Park community lost a long-time business owner, a dear friend, and a mentor to so many. For over 35 years, Scott was the owner and operator of Beynon's Service Station on Library Road. He was kind, trustworthy, hardworking, and a skilled mechanic. He used his expertise in the automotive repair field to serve thousands of people over the years. We believe he would have been proud to have inspired this scholarship to help young people with a desire to pursue a career in automotive technology.
