Betty Schmidt Endowment

Betty Schmidt grew up and lived most of her life in the Clayton and Golden area, graduating from Central High School and later working for nearly 35 years at Golden State Bank. Through her work at Golden State Bank and Brown County State Bank, she made many strong connections with people in the community and became a trusted part of their lives.

After Betty died in the summer of 2017 following a sudden illness, her son, Matt, established the Betty Schmidt Endowment to not only keep his mother’s memory alive, but to keep her spirit of caring for her community going strong. To honor his mother’s life and legacy, interest and earnings from the endowment will benefit projects that will help improve the lives of residents in Adams and Brown counties for years to come.
