Scholarships of $2,500 each were awarded to one current teacher enrolling in a Master’s in Education program and one aspiring teacher enrolling in an Alternative Teacher Certification program.
Both scholarships were created to address the ever-growing need for highly qualified teachers and to promote continued study in the education field.
