Angela Caldwell, VP for Technical Education at BRTC, was recently awarded the Marjorie Jeanne Allen Scholarship from Delta Kappa Gamma Society International in the amount of $10,000.
The honor society promotes excellence in education and personal and professional growth of women educators, leading in the field of graduate scholarships given to members and emphasizing leadership development for its more than 90,000 members in 18 countries. A member of the Society’s Kappa Chapter in Arkansas, Caldwell is attending Arkansas State University, where she will graduate this Saturday with a Specialist in Community College Teaching (SCCT), and will begin working on her Doctorate in Educational Leadership in August.
Dr. Joye Sterrett of Arizona, International Scholarship Committee Chairman, announced the recipients following the committee’s recent meeting at Society Headquarters in Austin, Texas. “We granted 24 Scholarships of $10,000 each for the 2013-2014 academic year,” Sterrett said.
Recipients must have earned a Bachelor’s Degree, be enrolled in a recognized graduate program and have been a Society member for at least three years to qualify for scholarship consideration. Since its scholarship program began in 1940, Delta Kappa Gamma Society International has given 1043 women educators $4 million in scholarships.
