School Superintendents of Alabama (SSA) and Schneider Electric, the Scholarship Program Sponsor, are proud to announce the high school graduating seniors who are recipients of $7,000 in SSA Student Scholarships and the educators who are recipients of $4,000 in SSA Administrator Scholarships for 2019.
Congratulations to the SSA/Schneider Electric Student Scholarship recipients who intend to pursue a degree in education from one of Alabama’s public colleges or universities.
Central High School senior Sheldon Hickman is one of the scholarship recipients. Hickman plans to attend Troy University. Six other students from across the state were also chosen.
Students were selected by the Superintendents who were chosen as district finalists for the SSA/Classworks Superintendent of the Year (SoY) Award.
The group also awarded scholarships to educators who plan to pursue a degree in school administration from one of Alabama’s public colleges or universities. Four educators from across the state were selected.
“One of SSA’s top priorities is to promote high quality public education throughout our state. This has become even more critical as we face a teacher shortage crisis not only in Alabama, but across our nation. It is our hope and belief that these scholarships will aid in the process of rebuilding our workforce by assisting these qualified students and educational leaders in achieving their career goals.
“These recipients have demonstrated a commitment to quality in our schools, and we are proud to be able to assist them as they pursue their degrees. Together with our partner, Schneider Electric, we congratulate each scholarship winner” said Ryan Hollingsworth, SSA Executive Director.
