Miss Ethel Schoeffner served the St. Charles Parish Public School System for 48 years, from 1917 to 1965, as an elementary school teacher for the major part of that time and as an elementary school principal for the latter part of her tenure at the old Norco Elementary School.

The scholarship awards $500 per semester up to a maximum of $2,500.
