The word Viking is customarily used to refer to the Norse (Scandinavian) explorers and warriors. The Old Norse noun Viking also referred to expeditions and in later medieval writings there was a phrasal verb expression “fara i Viking, “to go on an expedition”. In later texts, the phrase “to go Viking” implied participation in an activity or act as a warrior for a cause.
To that end, it is and always has been the goal of the Viking Backers Booster Club to make a difference at Mt. Hebron High School and in the Mount Hebron Community; that is, making a difference for all the student body, faculty body, and community members by bringing the community together on “expeditions” and “activities” to raise awareness and aid in procuring resources for activity-based clubs and sports teams and for the student body and faculty at-large.
The Viking Backers Booster Club is proud to announce the Norseman Scholarship, which will be awarded to three Mount Hebron High School Seniors who have personified the booster’s goal of making a difference at the high school and within the Mt. Hebron Community, while having maintained a 2.5 grade point average (GPA) or better.
