New building at Bend Senior HS to be named after local Medal of Honor recipient

The Bend-La Pine Schools’ Board of Directors voted to approve naming the new building at Bend Senior High School after Robert D. Maxwell, a Medal of Honor recipient and longtime automotive teacher at Bend High.

“He is a man who made great contributions to not only our school system, but to our country and our world and it’s an honor to be able to name a building after him,” said board member Amy Tatom.

The district said Tuesday night in a Facebook post that the building is slated to open in the fall of 2021.

The new building will sit on the same site where Maxwell taught automotive classes for decades.
