Description

A page from the St. Charles High School yearbook from 1951. The page features the St. Charles High School Freshman and Sophomore football team.

A notable student pictured is Jerry Bumgarner (1935-1983). Born on November 8, 1935, in St. Charles, Illinois, Bumgarner was an active member of the high school C Club, track, and football teams. On June 25, 1954, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps at nineteen years old. He served in the 7th Engineer Battalion and retired on June 24, 1956, reaching the rank of E2, Private First Class. He married Janice M. Colegrove and the couple lived in St. Charles until they moved to Clearwater, Florida. Bumgarner passed away on March 1, 1983.

In 2017, the University of Central Florida was one of three universities selected to launch the National Cemetery Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program Project. The program engaged a team of scholars to make the life stories of veterans buried in the Florida National Cemetery available to the public. The project engages UCF students in research and writing and fosters collaboration between students, faculty and local Central Florida schools to produce interactive curriculum for k-12 students. The corresponding website exhibit uses RICHES Mosaic Interface to create a digital archive of related data. The public can use the project-developed augmented-reality app at more than 100 gravesites at the Florida National Cemetery, where they can access the UCF student-authored biographies of veterans.
