Grant Guidelines: George and Lucille Buterbaugh Scholarship Fund
George and Lucille Buterbaugh came to the Town of Salisbury in 1965 and lived there for over thirty years until their deaths in 2002 and 2004, respectively. George served in World War II as a lieutenant commander in the U.S. Navy. He then worked as an architect in New York City before retiring to Salisbury. Lucille was a cosmetologist and proprietor of her own salon business on Madison Avenue. Having a deep love of their adopted home town, they were involved in many community organizations including the Holley House Museum, Salisbury Congregational Church and the Salisbury Garden Club. The George and Lucille Buterbaugh Fund was established by the Buterbaughs in 1993 to provide scholarship support to residents of the Town of Salisbury with financial need.
The goal of the George and Lucille Buterbaugh Scholarship is to provide support to graduating high school seniors who are residents of the Town of Salisbury for at least two years, who will attend an accredited college, university, vocational-technical or professional institute in the United States and for whom this award will have a significant impact.
Preference will be given to students who are residents of Sarum Village, East Meadow Homeowners’ Association, Faith House, Salisbury Housing Trust-built or renovated properties, or Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Connecticut-built or renovated properties in the Town of Salisbury.
