Norm started the Shoreland Foundation in hopes that someday it could help finance Christian education at Shoreland. God blessed his plans and the foundation has eclipsed 1.6 million dollars in assets and has contributed thousands of dollars in support to SLHS students. His passion for Christian education drove Norm to work endless hours in growing the foundation.
