The Douglas Sandwell Memorial Scholarship
The Doug Sandwell Scholarship was established in 2016 to honor the memory of Dr. Doug Sandwell, who dedicated his entire career to serving at Norfolk Christian Schools. He taught in almost every area of education for 20 years before his death, at age 46, in 2015. He served as a shining example to the entire community of a man of steadfast faith, integrity, and honor. He lived a life that glorified God, and his battle with cancer allowed him to serve as a living witness of a life lived in full devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ. His example of obedience, humility, integrity, and service inspired students and colleagues alike to honor God in all walks of life.
Who is eligible to apply?
Applications are not accepted for this scholarship. Selections will be made based on NCS Faculty and Staff recommendations. It will be awarded to a graduating senior at NCS who lives a life consistent with the principles that Dr. Sandwell taught passionately in his Bible classes and lived out in his daily life.
What does the scholarship cover?
The scholarship funds of $1,000 will be sent directly to the student’s college or university tuition account.
