5 Graduating Seniors Get Gale Foundation Scholarships
THE WILLIAM AND L.R. GALE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT SCHOLARSHIPS HAVE BEEN AWARDED TO FIVE GALETON HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS GRADUATING IN THE CLASS OF 2013. EACH SCHOLARSHIP IS FOR $5,000. TO BE APPLIED TOWARDS THEIR COLLEGE EDUCATION. THESE WERE PRESENTED AT A CEREMONY AT THE SCHOOL ON MAY 30.

THE STUDENT RECEPIENTS ARE : CHRISTOPHER SCOTT CIZEK, MCKAYLA L. COCHRAN, JORDON DUGAN, MEKENSIE M HUGGLER AND DREAMA PAUL.

THE FOUNDATION WAS ESTABLISHED BY A GIFT FROM LUCILLE GALE KNAPP, GRANDDAUGHTER OF WILLIAM MCCLURE GALE AND DAUGHTER OF L.R.GALE IN 1988.

THE GALE'S CAME TO THIS VALLEY IN 1880 WHEN FEWER THAT 100 PEOPLE LIVED HERE. THEY BUILT A SOLE LEATHER TANNERY IN PIKE MILLS, NOW GALETON. THE TANNERY WAS THE MAJOR INDUSTRY IN PIKE MILLS. THE GALE FAMILY BUILT HOMES FOR THE WORKERS AND CHURCHES. BY 1893 750 LIVED IN PIKE MILLS. IN 1897 THE TOWN WAS NAMED GALETON IN HONOR OF WILLIAM GALE. BY 1900 OVER 4,000 LIVED IN GALETON. THE TANNERY, LUMBER INDUSTRY AND THE RAILROAD CAUSED GALETON TO BE A BOOM TOWN.

THE GENEROSITY OF THE GALE FAMILY CONTINUES TO BENEFIT THE PEOPLE OF GALETON. SINCE 1988 THE FOUNDATION HAS SUPPORTED SCHOLARSHIPS, THE LIBRARY, COLLINS MEMORIAL PARK, LITTLE LEAGUE FIELD AND MANY COMMUNITY INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS.
