New Scholarship Available for STEM Education Students

Students in the School of Education that desire to teach STEM subjects have a new source for scholarship dollars. When Margaret Allen Barclay's sister Maryann passed away last year, Margaret wanted a fitting way to honor and celebrate Maryann's long career in education. She and her husband, Ned, established the Maryann Allen Echols Class of 1961 Scholarship in Education in hopes of not only providing financial support, but inspiring the recipients to carry on Maryann's love for learning and strive to be the best they can be in the field of teaching.

For more information about the Maryann Allen Echols Class of 1961 Scholarship and how to apply, contact Brian Strickland.
