Norwood Promise Releases First Scholarship

NorwoodPromiseLogo_Large09Norwood Promise is pleased to announce the Norwood Promise Scholarship Fund. Two individuals, one male and one female from Norwood High School, will be selected to receive $1,000 each to go toward any in-state post-secondary institution. This scholarship will be the first of many to come as Norwood Promise is currently collecting donations to further establish its scholarship fund.
