William and Margaret Norton

SHINGLEHOUSE, PA – Applicants are being sought for the William and Margaret Norton Scholarship Trust. 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.

The scholarship 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.

Applications will be available after January 1, 2011 in the Oswayo High School guidance office. Application deadline is April 1, 2011. 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. William Norton was a former Shinglehouse mayor and businessman. He and his wife operated the William N. Norton Co., a block manufacturing and building supply company, later renamed Norton’s Building Supply. He was a life member and former fire chief of the Shinglehouse Volunteer Fire Department and helped organize the Shinglehouse Volunteer Ambulance Association. The Nortons were both very active members of their community.
