THE CALVIN STUTZMAN MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP ($1000)

Cal Stutzman devoted more than 30 years of his life to teaching Industrial Arts to students at Nappanee and NorthWood High Schools. A well-rounded education was something he advocated his entire life. However, he realized that some students opted for a more singular track into a trade and it was his desire to encourage his students to pursue a career that best fit their talents.

With this purpose in mind, a scholarship has been established in Cal’s name to honor a graduate in good standing who wishes to pursue a 2-year trade degree. However, if no such candidate arises, then on pursuing a 4-year degree in technology education (i.e., building construction management, engineering, computer graphics, architecture, etc.) should then be considered.

Cal’s life was characterized by his service to the community. He also mentored and guided many students outside the classroom. It is in this spirit that our family wishes to honor Cal by offering this scholarship to a NWHS graduate who demonstrates good citizenship and a mentoring attitude toward others. Both the field of future study and citizenship should have equal weight in the decision making.
