Richard Norris was an important part of the Antioch University Seattle campus since 1988, serving in roles such as financial aid officer, vice president of finance and administration, and most recently as the special assistant to the president until his retirement in May 2012. Richard’s commitment to Native American issues began in the late 60’s while working at Western Washington University. He made it a priority to work at institutions that support and develop programs for Native students; for example, in Bellingham with the Lummi Nation, at Antioch with the Muckleshoot, and with many other tribes with the Early College grant.
This scholarship recognizes Richard Norris’ many contributions to the Antioch University Seattle Community, and seeks to honor his commitment to student service by supporting and recognizing the potential of a new Native American, Alaskan Native, or Native Hawaiian AUS student. This is a one-time, $2000 scholarship.
