Scholarships Available For Future Educators

khts_schools_chalkboardLocal high school seniors who are considering careers in the field of education are invited to apply for scholarships offered by the SCV Education Foundation. Application packets are available in local schools and application instructions are available online at


The foundation intends to award scholarships totaling $13,000 in 2010, which may be given as a single award to one student or may be distributed as multiple awards to several recipients. High school graduates entering any college as a fulltime student in pursuit of a four-year degree are eligible, including those who plan to attend a community college first.

Scholarships will be awarded to students whose personal goals, college major and declared career path indicate future success in a field related to education. Finalists will be interviewed Thursday afternoon, April 15, and the winners will be presented at the foundation’s annual Teacher Tribute celebration April 22 in the Performing Arts Center at College of the Canyons.

The Backer SCV Education Foundation scholarship is named for Foundation President Jim Backer, saluting his 25 years of service with the foundation. The foundation scholarship committee is headed by Dave LeBarron, director of curriculum and assessment for the Hart School District.

“The SCV Education Foundation is committed to the support and promotion of public school education. We believe that by supporting the college and vocational costs of outstanding young people who have graduated from our schools and plan to pursue a career in teaching and education, we are accomplishing an important part of our mission,” Backer said. “These students represent a great hope not only for the future of education, but also the future of our community and our country.”

The SCV Education Foundation began as a committee for the SCV Chamber of Commerce in 1984 and became a 501(c)(3) non-profit on its own in 1995. Programs such as the SCV Literacy & Arts Festival, Teacher Tribute and Principal for a Day support local education while they raise funds to finance such foundation programs as scholarships, student enrichment grants and Read With Me. The foundation has been offering scholarships to local students since 1988.

Scholarship applications must be postmarked by April 2, 2010, to be considered. More information on the scholarships or on foundation programs is available at the foundation’s Web site or by calling Executive Director Ann Unger at (661) 414-4465.
