Del Easton Memorial Scholarship
Del Easton was a perfect example of a gentleman, a scholar, and a Coyote.
Del found his home in Williston, ND, in 1966 when he became the principal at Williston High School. He spent two decades as the principal at WHS before becoming the district’s superintendent of schools, a position he held until he retired in 1992. After retiring, Del ran the Williston Coyote Foundation for the next 20 years.
To put it simply, Del loved kids and helping them realize their potential. He saw the best in everyone, whether they were a star student or one who was struggling. He rose early and stayed late each day with a goal of lifting up all the kids who walked the hallways of his schools.
Del lives on in the hearts and minds of the tens of thousands of us – his family, the students, teachers and coworkers at WHS, his church family at First Lutheran, his coffee groups, and the friends and neighbors whose lives were touched by his kindness, enthusiasm for life and warm smile. To know him was to love him.
This scholarship was started by someone who was directly impacted by Del's kindness and wanted to pay tribute to the outstanding contributions he made in the lives of so many people in Williston and beyond. It will be awarded to someone who is hard-working, caring, and outgoing, traits that Del displayed each and every day.
Scholarship Amount: $500
