SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITY

THE DIRECTORS OF THE CANNON FREE LIBRARY TRUST

ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE

HENRY W. CANNON SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

This scholarship for graduating seniors of Delaware Academy is made possible by the foresight and generosity of the late Henry White Cannon.  Mr. Cannon was born in Delhi in 1850 and began his career as a teller at the Delaware National Bank of Delhi. He founded two banks in Minnesota and was later appointed Comptroller of the Currency by President Arthur in 1884. Henry Cannon’s motivation, character and diligence brought him to the position of President and Board Chairman of the Chase National Bank of Manhattan as well as President of the New York Clearing House Association.  Mindful of his Delhi roots, Mr. Cannon became a progressive benefactor of the town of his birth; a few of his philanthropic gifts to Delhi were support of the Delhi Hospital originally on Franklin Street, the park at the corner of Franklin and Main and the establishment of the Cannon Free Library of Delhi in 1918.

The Cannon Trustees have established these scholarships to recognize outstanding Delaware Academy graduates who exhibit the dedication to excel, the drive to succeed, the outstanding character and the generous public mindedness of Henry W. Cannon.

Two Scholarships of $3000.00 each will be presented two Delaware Academy Graduating Seniors at Commencement 2019.

COMPLETED APPLICATIONS MUST BE POSTMARKED NO LATER THAN APRIL 15, 2019
