Wood-Noble Memorial Scholarship
National City Bank of Pennsylvania petitioned the court to have the Venango Area Community Foundation became the trustee of the Julia Wood Smith Charitable Trust in 2000. The Wood-Noble Memorial Scholarship honors the ancestors of Julia A. Smith, Barnard Wood and Mark Noble. The Wood-Noble Scholarship is given annually to the students from the Franklin and Rocky Grove High Schools who are awarded the Good Citizen’s Award and the American History Award presented annually by the Venango Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. The Scholarships provide financial aid in the event that the Award winners desire to go to college, university, technical or trade school, nursing school or Business College.
