About the Scholarship
The Simon Memorial Scholarship is meant to honor and celebrate the lives of our beloved father, Norbert L. Simon and our beloved mother, Irene C. Simon. They both came from poor working class Depression era families and, through hard work and discipline managed to raise four children and inspire several grandchildren who have successfully sought professions in trades and higher education. Both our parents believed the best way to live one’s life was to work towards being independent and debt free while being grateful for these opportunities by giving time back to the community through projects such as Habitat for Humanity and the Salvation Army. Thus, we are honoring them with a scholarship that helps young Success High School graduates to accomplish similar goals.
