Future history teacher awarded grant
Lillard “Del” Davis, a history education student at Missouri State University, was recently awarded an $8,000 Ozark Teacher Corps grant from the Community Foundation of the Ozarks (CFO) to facilitate his goal of teaching secondary students in rural Missouri.
“The membership in Ozarks Teacher Corps has been wonderful,” said Davis. “I have received insight, ideas, resources and training for rural specific issues, preparing me to be much more effective in working with the students and with the community in these areas.”
The Ozarks Teacher Corps is a three-year-old scholarship program that focuses on recruiting highly qualified teaching candidates to serve in rural schools within the Ozarks. For more information on the program, visit www.ruralschoolspartnership.org/ozarks-teacher-corps.
“In today’s world, we can no longer just teach our students academics. We must show them how to become an integral part of their community and encourage them to be active in working to address the social, economic and political issues around them. The Ozarks Teacher Corps is providing me the training and resources I need to accomplish this,” he added.
