Powell Family Gift Establishes Teacher Education Scholarships
The Isabelle Thayer Powell Endowed Memorial Scholarship Fund has awarded the HUSOE a gift to provide scholarship support for teacher education students. Committed to the traditional preparation of teachers, the Isabelle Thayer Powell Scholarship Fund will support two students per academic year who are enrolled in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction. Students must be in good standing in the School of Education (minimum 3.0). Additionally, students must have a financial need and an interest in community activities with a deep commitment to Pre K-12 public education.
The Isabelle Thayer Powell Endowed Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 2008 by Mr. & Mrs. Julian T. Powell and George W. Powell to honor the memory of their mother and mother-in-law. Mrs. Powell was a dedicated teacher and gifted singer. She ended her teaching career at the age of seventy.
