Norm Usiskin Award

In remembrance of Mr. Norm Usiskin, a valued colleague at Forest Green School
that passed away in 2014, we are please to offer an annual award to a student
that demonstrates an interest in the Arts. Mr. Usiskin taught at Forest Green
School for a number of years and in that time shared his love of drama and music
in many creative ways. His family has created an endowment fund that is to be
used to provide opportunities for a child attending Forest Green to explore their
own creativity.

Details outlined by Norm’s family are that the funds are to be used to “support
students demonstrating extra-curricular leadership and resiliency with a
preference for students who demonstrate an aptitude for music, drama and/or
theatre arts”

At this time, we are making applications available to student who wish to be
considered for this award. If you would like more information regarding the
criteria for the award or an application, please contact Ms. Heward or Mrs.
Shmyr. The application deadline is April 30. If you have any questions let us know!
