North High School Stadium, Other North Facilities Get New Name


North High School’s football stadium will now be known as Bundrant Stadium, following a dedication today (6-19-12) commemorating the generosity of North High School alumnus Chuck Bundrant and his wife, Diane. The media center and a science laboratory at North were also dedicated in recognition of his extended family.

The Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation Board of School Trustees voted in May to honor the Bundrant family’s generosity by naming two rooms after the family — The Charles L. and Algie M. Bundrant Media Center and the Joe and Marie Schultheis Science Laboratory Classroom.

“I value the education I received at North High School and I’m very fortunate to be able to give back to a school that challenged my imagination and helped me become the man I am today,” Bundrant said of his gift to EVSC Foundation.

Superintendent David Smith thanked the Bundrants citing the benefit of private donations in a time of funding reductions that make it difficult to fully support programs and activities that make the EVSC’s schools superior. “Due to generous funding from private businesses and individuals like Chuck and Diane, EVSC can continue to offer outstanding educational opportunities for our students,” Smith said.

Chuck 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.

“It is with great pleasure that I have gotten to know Chuck and understand his humble desire to not draw attention to his generosity. However, we do appreciate his gift and are so appreciative of his wish to give back to the school that gave him his start,” said EVSC’s Chief of Staff Rudy Montejano.


  1. Is EVSC’s Chief of Staff Rudy Montejano the same person President Nixon appointed as Commissioner of the Interstate Commerce Commission?

  2. I wonder how much Bundrant paid, I mean donated, to get his name on so much taxpayer funded real estate?

    Bertram spend a lot of the EVSC Foundation’s money getting the alumni who became rich and/or famous to return to Evansville so he could mine them for more money to waste.

    It is rumored that the EVSC is hanging on by it’s financial fingernails and the stuff will be hitting the fan in the near future.
