William O. Martin Math Prize Fund

 William O. Martin was born in 1904 in Pierce Township. William passed a test as a senior that allowed him to begin teaching grades one through eight following one summer at college. He later continued his education and received a master’s degree from Indiana University in 1949. His favorite subject was mathematics. During his 47 years of teaching, he also served as principal and coach at East Washington High School. As coach, he never had a losing season and he introduced the school motto, “All for one and one for all.” This eventually led the school to adopt the Musketeer as the mascot and royal purple and bright gold as the school colors.

William married Elizabeth Hoyt ten years after graduating high school. One of his accomplishments after retirement was to develop a popular blend of apple cider. He also helped get electricity and more updated phone lines into the eastern part of the county. William was also involved with the East Washington Lions Club, the John Hay Society Sons of the American Revolution, his church and the building fund committee for the Washington County Memorial Hospital.

William O. Martin’s children established this fund to honor their father and reward an Eastern High graduating senior who has excelled in mathematics.
