Scholarship Dinner 2017
The College of Education Scholarship Dinner is an annual event which celebrates the success of our students and shows appreciation to the donors who support our scholarship funds. This year we were honored to hear from Mary Burbank, Assistant Dean and Director of the Urban Institute for Teacher Education (UITE). Mary shared her history with the College, talked about the future of the College under Dean Elaine Clark’s leadership, and gave her perspective on the impact scholarship support makes on our students. Kathy Youngberg, recipient of the Ruth H. Lundgren Endowed Scholarship and the Mark & Connie Woodland Endowed Scholarship, spoke on behalf of scholarship recipients. Kathy, a senior in the department of Special Education, shared her reasons choosing to pursue degree in early education in Special Education. She closed by sharing her gratitude for the donors and friends who have supported her through her education journey and whose example she someday hopes to emulate.
Many future teachers, counselors, and education leaders would not be able to pursue their dream of an education degree without financial assistance. The gift of scholarship lasts a lifetime and is an outstanding way for donors to demonstrate a commitment to the future of our students and the College of Education. In 2017-2018 we are providing $380,600 in scholarship support to 94 students. We appreciate each donor, faculty, staff, and friend who continues to partner with us to provide much needed support to deserving students striving to make a difference in our greater education community.
