When Bend High School seniors walk across the stage to graduate this Saturday, they'll be joined by a distinguished honorary graduate. Bob Maxwell, 90, Oregon's only living Medal of Honor recipient will be receiving his diploma with the students. He left school in the 7th grade and fifty years ago received his GED, but he'll formally go through the ceremony on Saturday. “I completed the 7th grade and went to go to work on my family's farm in Kansas. That’s what was customary to go to work on the farm when we got old enough. We just changed occupations from school to farm.” Veterans advocate Dick Tobiason approached Bend High officials to get the ball rolling: “I did ask the Principal of Bend High a couple years ago. I asked again recently with the new Principal and he said sure. He deserves this recognition.” In 1944 during World War II, Maxwell fell on a live grenade in France to save his fellow soldiers. His extraordinary act of bravery earned him the Medal of Honor.
