Billy Stonecipher Scholarship Fund

Billy was born in 1919 and grew up in Salem. He graduated form Salem High School and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics and science from Butler University. He earned a Master of Science degree from Indiana University and also earned 66 hours of credit beyond the Master’s level.

He was an army veteran, having served four years in WWII in both the European and Pacific theaters. In 1971, he became the superintendent for Salem Schools.

He served in that position for four years, until his death.

Not many people come full circle in their lives, as Billy did. Rising to Superintendent of the school system that provided him his education for the fi rst twelve years is an unusual, outstanding accomplishment. Helping to build a new educational facility is a once in a lifetime event. Being honored with a scholarship fund, which will provide a Salem graduating senior with money for college every year, forever, is a legacy that will never die. Not bad for a “kid from Salem.”
