This award of a personal computer and printer is given to honor Mr. George Barton, who taught mathematics at Olympus High School from 1956 to 1982. He was a challenging and creative instructor who encouraged his students to make the best possible use of their talents, to seek further education, and to pursue advanced degrees. Many students owe their success to Mr. George Barton.
Mr. Barton passed away in 2003 and is greatly missed. His son, Mr. Ray Barton currently teaches mathematics at Olympus High School.
The personal computer and printer will be presented to an outstanding Olympus High Senior who will graduate in the current year and will be attending an “OUT-OF-STATE” college or university. The computer and printer will be presented just prior to the student’s departure for school in the fall, after verification by the college or university of intent to enroll. (valued at $2500)
