Boys Republic History Presented Next Monday

The Chino Hills Historical Society continues its series of presentations on local history next Monday, 12 October at 7:00 p.m. in the Chino Hills Community Center on Peyton Drive across from Ayala High School with a talk by Max Scott, retired executive director of Boys Republic, on the history of that institution.

Scott, who arrived to work on the campus in 1965 and was at the helm leading the school from 1976 until 2010.  Utilizing photographs from the extensive archives held by Boys Republic, as well as a short video presentation made for the school's centennial, Scott will detail the remarkable work conducted by the private, non-profit, non-sectarian educational facility, which has worked with 30,000 students since its inception in 1907 at its Chino Hills location.

Founded on the principles of individual responsibility and self-respect, the nationally-regarded Boys Republic program gives its students a formal high school education, broad-based vocational training, extensive professional guidance and — very significantly — meaningful work that lets them learn the demands and enjoy the rewards of earning part of their own way.
