01-20-16-WHITE-Scholarship Gives Students Chance to Recognize Former Teachers

A Truman State Scholarship Offers Opportunity for Students to Recognize Former Teachers.

Through the support of Truman’s education alumni and a generous estate gift, the James and Margaret Mudd Teacher Recognition Scholarship provides ongoing recognition of excellence in education. This month, graduating students have the opportunity to recognize a high school educator/counselor who made a positive impact on their academic growth. The chosen teacher/counselor will then receive an invitation to be formally recognized and participate in Truman’s spring commencement. To further acknowledge the recipient, a $1,000 scholarship will be awarded in the recipient’s honor to an incoming Truman student from the teacher’s/counselor’s high school.
