Margaret Geiger Green Memorial Scholarship
Fund Background: The fund was established in 1986 in memory of Margaret Geiger Green by her family. Margaret moved to Cavalier in the mid-30's to teach school in Cavalier. She taught music through all grades and taught 5th grade as well. After marrying, she remained in Cavalier, raising five children, all who graduated from Cavalier School. Two grandchildren have also graduated from Cavalier. Margaret continued to teach many students in the area of music -- both piano and organ until shortly before her death in 1985. Education was always very important to her, encouraging not only her children but others as well to further their education beyond high school. The family felt that sponsoring a scholarship in her name would be fitting to the memory of a woman who valued education.
Eligibility Requirements: The scholarship will assist a graduating senior from the Cavalier High School. The award will be made after successful completion of the first term as a full time college student. Factors to be considered in the selection process include without priority: academic achievement, participation in school and community extracurricular activities and financial need.
Applications accepted January 1 - April 1 only. Applications received outside of this window will NOT be accepted.
