Aleman awarded Educator’s Legacy Scholarship

McDaniel College has awarded freshman Sarah Aleman of Millsboro an Educator’s Legacy Scholarship valued at up to $100,000, the college announced this week. Aleman is a graduate of Sussex Central High School.

Children with a parent or guardian who has at least four years of current and consecutive full-time employment at a K-12 school or community college can apply for this guaranteed scholarship to attend McDaniel College. Any service qualifies, such as teachers, administrators, counselors, nurses or support staff, etc.

There is no limit to the number of Educator’s Legacy Scholarships awarded by McDaniel. The $25,000 annual scholarship (or $20,000 per year for commuter students) is renewable each year to students who maintain continuous enrollment and satisfactory academic progress.

According to McDaniel President Roger N. Casey, “McDaniel has successfully trained teachers and administrators for over 100 years. The college also has a tradition of producing top educators, including the 2011 National Teacher of the Year Michelle Shearer. We are proud of this legacy and want to celebrate our commitment to educators by rewarding the children of elementary and secondary school employees with this scholarship.”
