Dr. Everett W. Butler Jr. OD Memorial Scholarship

The Dr. Everett W. Butler Jr. O.D. Scholarship, established by Kenneth W. Butler and Colleen F. Butler of Oakton, Va., is in memory of Mr. Butler’s father, Dr. Everett W. Butler Jr. Dr. Butler practiced optometry for more than 20 years in Bradford, Pa. He and his wife, Grace, raised four sons and were active in their schools and community.

Recipients must be residents of North Carolina, Virginia or Pennsylvania, and must be majoring in the sciences.

The award is for $3,500 and will be paid in January 2017.
