While at Eisenhower, he wore many hats, he was a teacher, a basketball coach, a football coach, a driver’s education teacher, referee, an athletic trainer, and a mentor to many. In 1980, Mr. Bongers received the prestigious award of Biology Teacher of the Year, in 1987 received the Washington State Science Teacher of the Year award. Then, in 1989, the State Game and Eisenhower students dedicated a Wildlife Reserve in Cowiche Canyon in his name.
Mr. Bongers would have turned 85 on the day the Eisenhower Class of 2019 was schedule to graduate. So long Mr. Bongers.
