|Phi Delta Kappa Donates $1,500 Toward Scholarship
|The Illinois Prairie Chapter of Phi Delta Kappa has donated $1,500 towards the Teacher Education Scholarship given through the Carl Sandburg College Foundation. This brings the total donation from the local Illinois Prairie Chapter to $2,500.
The scholarship is part of a five-year effort by the local chapter to help qualified students to complete their course work at Carl Sandburg College. Students can then transfer to teacher education programs at Knox College, Monmouth College, and Western Illinois University. George Chadderdon, a long time member of the chapter and adjunct instructor at CSC, initiated efforts for this scholarship. Ken Grodjesk, assistant professor of education and psychology at CSC, assisted Chadderdon with implementing the scholarship. Stephen Schroth and Vicky Romano, of Knox College, currently serve as president and vice president, respectively, of the Illinois Prairie Chapter.
The Teacher Education Scholarship will be awarded to a second-year CSC student with a 3.0 GPA. The student must demonstrate a commitment to pursuing a teacher education program and plan to transfer to a four-year institution.
