SHINGLEHOUSE, PA - Ten Oswayo Valley High School students have received a total of $115,000 in scholarships from the William and Margaret Norton Scholarship Trust. The scholarship grants awarded range from two to four years and are dependent upon satisfactory academic progress.
The trust was created by the Nortons upon their deaths and is designed to help graduates of Oswayo Valley High School afford a post secondary education. The scholarship is open to all graduates of Oswayo Valley High School in Potter County. 2010 graduates earning scholarships are Samantha Walker and Aaron Duell.
2011 graduates receiving grants are Brittany Fuller, Brianna Harvey, Trevor Howard, Tarra Warriner, Michelle Cobado, Stacie Cole, Myles Pearsall and Katie Slater.
The scholarships may be used for any type of post secondary education including conventional baccalaureate programs as well as vocational and trade school programs, associate degree and graduate school programs.
It was the Nortons’ preference that the scholarship committee favors applicants who pursue post secondary education immediately following high school graduation. The Nortons also requested that the committee consider applicants who demonstrate good citizenship, character, values and motivation, academic merit, educational achievement or academic or educational promise and a degree of financial need.
Citizens & Northern Bank serves as the trustee of the Norton Scholarship Trust.William N. Norton died Dec. 31, 2003 and his wife, Margaret, died May 5, 2008.
