Teacher Cadets Named Appalachian State University James Scholars

Congratulations to a couple of our NC Teacher Cadets! Allison Powers was a 2012 recipient of the Teacher Cadet Scholarship and Adam Moore was a 2014 Teacher Cadet Scholarship winner. Now education majors and leaders at Appalachian State University, they were both named James Scholars at Appalachian State.

The Steve and Judy James Scholarship for Education is awarded to one incoming freshman each year who plans to pursue a career in teaching in North Carolina. Recipients are chosen based on academic achievement, leadership, community service, and financial need. The Steve and Judy James Scholarship is $5,000 each year and is renewable for four years.

He Was Borrowing Eyeglasses From Others…

“Kevin” has not had an eye examine for many years. Due to an unstable family situation, he has been shuffled around quite a bit in his life and is currently living with guardians. Kevin is a gifted athlete at his high school and does well, but has shared with teachers that he has a hard time seeing. He has even borrowed eyeglasses from others to try to help his situation. Because of this Foundation, Kevin has his own pair of prescribed eyeglasses now. Your gifts are making a difference!
