Norton E. Croft Scholarship

Established in 1975, the Norton E. Croft Scholarship was created by Mrs. Muriel Norton to honor the memory of her husband. Mr. Norton attended Superior State Teachers College in the 1930s, and passed away in December of 1973. An excerpt about him on the Lambda Delta Chi page in the 1935 Gitche Gumee: “Norton Croft – husky lad from Lancaster, aspires to place on football team, sells everything now in the school stationaire, looks to career in the navy.”

Scholarship criteria: For students of academic merit, preferably incoming freshmen.
