William G. Peters Memorial Scholarship
William Peters was a graduate of St. Marys Area High, a Ford Foundation Scholar. Bill and his wife Bobbi were married over 54 years, until his untimely passing in 2017. They raised their children to respect the value of a good education. They also were graduates of SMAHS. Bill went back to college (University of Pittsburgh – Bradford) in his 40’s to complete his education. Bill later became an Associate Dean at Pitt-Bradford, and, among other accomplishments, pioneered “Outreach Programs”, which brought college courses directly to communities in North Central Pennsylvania, including St. Marys. One of Bill’s primary passions in life was to provide additional educational opportunities to the young people of his hometown. This scholarship fund is intended to honor his memory by providing some financial assistance to students of SMAHS as a reward for their objectively measured educational attainment.
