Norman Furuseth taught at Williston High from 1956 to 1966. After moving away from Williston for eight years, he returned as Elementary Coordinator for the Williston Schools until his retirement. The Furuseth's were great believers in public education and loved living in Williston. This scholarship is given every year as a tribute to them.
