THE ETHEL STALTER SCHOLARSHIP 

Offered by the Montvale Parent Teacher Organization 

 

Ethel Stalter 

Ethel Stalter was Principal of the Montvale Public Schools from 1926 to 1974. She was also a life-long resident of Montvale and a descendent of Montvale’s original settlers. In 1913, at the age of 19, Mrs. Stalter began her teaching career in the one-room, School #1, on Spring Valley Road. She attended Trenton Normal School where she received a Normal School Certificate. After World War I, Mrs. Stalter graduated from the University of Chicago with a B.A. Degree in Education. She went on to receive her Master’s Degree in School Administration from New York University. After teaching in Woodcliff Lake for two years, she returned to the Montvale School System as Principal of Schools in 1926. She retired in 1960 only to return to teaching again, finally retiring in 1974 at the age of 80. In 1957, the six-room addition to Memorial School was named the Ethel Stalter Wing in recognition of her many years of service to the Montvale community. Mrs. Stalter was also credited with spearheading the drive to establish the Montvale Public Library. The original Borough Library was built on the site of School #2 where she had been Principal. 

It is with great pleasure that we, the Montvale PTO, offer the Ethel Stalter Scholarship in honor of her tireless devotion to the children of Montvale. This scholarship has been funded by the PTO since 1987 and is awarded each June. The scholarship is open to those who wish to pursue a career in service to youth that have graduated from the Montvale Public School System, specifically, Fieldstone Middle School and are graduating seniors of Pascack Hills High School.
