Caston, Earl & Alta May Memorial Fund (Scholarship)


Fund Est. 1997

The Earl and Alta May Caston Scholarship Fund was established by Earl and Alta May Caston.  The Castons served this community well for many years and were active in their church as officers and active participants in their church’s organizations.

They gave much of their time, talent, and treasury, even while raising a large family of eight children all born in Decatur.  While Alta May was a homemaker, Earl worked many years at the First State Bank of Decatur.  In that capacity, he assisted many community groups with his expertise.

At the Bank, Earl hired and trained many students from North Adams and Adams Central and that is why scholarships are awarded to these two schools.  These scholarships are their ‘thank you’ to a community where they lived in, served, and loved.
Each year 20+ $1,000 scholarships are awarded to Adams Central and North Adams Seniors.
