TCU Announces Teacher Appreciation Scholarship Recipients: Congrats to all the winners!
Tremont Credit Union hosted its 2nd Annual Boston Public Schools Teacher Appreciation Scholarship Program. The program offers classroom scholarships for three dedicated professionals who demonstrated commitment to careers in education. Many Boston teachers spend $1,000 or more on their students and classroom needs.
Teachers were nominated by colleagues, friends and family members who believe these teachers go above and beyond and stand out from all the rest. A selection committee evaluated all 89 nominations and scored them using a scoring rubric. The top ten highest scored nominees were announced, and public voting takes place. This year, we received 4,678 total votes. The top three teachers who receive the greatest cumulative votes receive scholarships for their classrooms.
- First Place Recipient: Louise Kent, a special education teacher at Brighton High School to receive $1,500
- Second Place Recipient: Karen (Kiki) McCarthy, a teacher at Snowden International School to receive $500
- Third Place Recipient: Josephine (Josie) Glausen, a teacher at Excel High School to receive $250
