Norm and Linda Schmidt

NIACC retirees, Norm and Linda Schmidt of Mason City, have deep connections and loyalty to NIACC. The Schmidts endowed the Schmidt Family Math Scholarship to benefit NIACC students with math majors. The Schmidt Family Scholarship will assist students who graduate from the High School Equivalency Degree (HSED) program.  Norm Schmidt was a math instructor at NIACC from 1965 to 1997. Linda Schmidt was a section chair in the Adult Education / Community Services Division from 1971 to 1989.  The Schmidt’s three daughters all graduated from NIACC. The Schmidts believe that scholarships are an essential foundation as they encourage individuals to reflect on and strive for a well-rounded education. Scholarships also assist people in becoming future community members in good standing.
