The Robert & Joan Deaton Memorial Scholarship was founded in 2016 in memory of Robert & Joan. In the mid 1960's Bob and Joan moved from New York City to Marysville to raise their 3 children. Joan spent over 15 years as the Marysville Middle School librarian and both were active members of the community. Bob and Joan built their world around their family and were strong proponents of education.
The intent of the Fund is to annually distribute a minimum of $2,000 in the form of an academic scholarship.
Scholarship recipients will be chosen on the basis of the following:

3) High School transcripts, including GPA and ACT/SAT scores if available.
