North High School’s Bundrant Stadium Officially Dedicated
The Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation and EVSC Foundation officially dedicated North High School’s Bundrant Stadium in a ceremony before the school’s home game against Evansville Memorial High School. In June, EVSC announced the naming of the facility as Bundrant Stadium, commemorating the generosity of North High School alumnus Chuck Bundrant and his wife Diane.
The Bundrants were on hand for the pre-game ceremony at the stadium. The couple spoke highly of their interactions with the staff and families of North High School, EVSC and EVSC Foundation. “I want to thank John Skinner, Amy Barron, David Smith, Mike Duckworth, Rudy Montejano, and so many others at EVSC who have put their hearts and souls into developing this remarkable campus and this fabulous stadium. This is a great honor for me and the entire Bundrant family. We are very blessed,” Chuck Bundrant said.
Bundrant is a strong supporter of education in the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation and was first honored in 2010 by being named a member of the inaugural class of the EVSC Foundation Hall of Fame. He is a 1960 graduate of North High School and still maintains strong ties with many of his fellow classmates.
He is Chairman and Founder of Trident Seafoods, with corporate offices in Seattle, Washington. His journey with Trident Seafoods began in 1973 with one Alaska crab boat. He grew his firm to become North America's largest vertically integrated seafood harvesting and processing company with a strong international presence. Chuck and Diane Bundrant continue to support educational programs on the West Coast, as well.
