Norman Family Scholarship Established

Janet and Terry Norman recently established the Norman Family Scholarship to benefit Brown County students pursuing further education in a variety of ways.  From four year degrees to vocational skills, Mark and Terry feel it is important to support this need in our community.  Janet said, “There is a real need in our community to support kids that don’t want to go to school for four years, but instead want to pursue a trade or vocational direction. These kids might become successful plumbers, electricians, or other very important trades.”

Terry Norman knows the important boost a scholarship can provide.  “The concept of helping students get a leg up with grants and scholarships is a personal one.  They really helped me get through college.  I do believe that if it weren’t for scholarships, I wouldn’t have gone to college.  If it wasn’t there when I went to school, I wouldn’t have been able to do it.  I worked jobs for the summer, but it wasn’t enough.  After working with the BCCF Scholarship committee, I could still see the need.  A $500 scholarship can be a big deal for a student.”

So, how can you help?  If you are interested in establishing a fund of any type to support your community, please give us a call at 812-988-4882 and we will gladly discuss options with you.  You can also make a donation to any of our existing scholarship funds to make an impact for future generations.
