40 students selected to participate in Teachers Scholars Academy

12 Jul 2019    

Forty recent high-school graduates have been selected to join the Teachers Scholars Academy in CEHS at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln this upcoming fall semester. The academy was created in order to grow the teaching workforce in the state of Nebraska and address the future teacher shortage. These students will mark the inaugural cohort of the academy thanks to a generous donation from the William and Ruth Scott Family Foundation.

“This is an incredible group of students with diverse backgrounds and experiences who will help shape each other’s’ learning about society and education throughout their four years in the academy,” stated UNL Teachers Scholars Academy Coordinator, Braden Foreman. The coordinator leads the academy, and serves as an advocate and mentor for the scholars in the academy. “This group represents some of the most promising future educators with already ample experience working with youth. I am excited to see how they progress through the academy and into their careers of working with people and their respective communities.”
