BEND, OR -- A Bend man who attended night classes at COCC in the early 1950’s, John Overbay, has given the college 1-million dollars for scholarships. Zak Boone, Executive Director of the COCC Foundation says the gift from the retired businessman, will be used to establish an endowed fund. Boone says the principal will be invested for three years. At the end of three years money will start being awarded for scholarships while the principal continues to grow. Overbay is a former board member of both the college and the foundation.
