The PC5 Story

In 2008, five young graduates of Park City High School (ages 17-20) tragically died between the months of February and September. These five students had the opportunity to attend a wonderful high school in Park City, where they were given every opportunity to prepare for their futures. In memory of their children who died, the parents of the Park City 5 want to provide educational opportunities for other children in need. With that goal in mind, they have planned to build five schools in five areas of the world where they are desperately needed. The Park City 5 Memorial Fund has been established to raise money to build these schools. The fund has also been designated to establish 5 annual scholarships to distribute to PCHS students who may wish to accompany the expedition. This will not only benefit the people living in the communities where the schools are built, but also the individuals who travel to work on the schools. They will have an unforgettable language and cultural exchange and life changing experiences while they are working to serve others and remember The Park City 5.
