Seven outstanding graduate students in educational administration nationally were recognized on Saturday by AASA at the 3rd General Session of the 2018 AASA national conference.
Each earns a $2,500 scholarship toward their doctoral degrees. Each scholarship is named in honor of a former AASA executive director — Sherwood D. Shankland, Worth McClure, Finis E. Engleman, Forrest E. Connor, Paul B. Salmon, Richard D. Miller and Paul D. Houston.
The 2018 scholarship recipients are: Julia Carlson, Fall River Public Schools, Fall River, Mass.; Richard Cruz, Houston Independent School District, Houston, Texas; Scott Hurwitz, Glastonbury Public Schools, Glastonbury, Conn.; Cory Irwin, Monroe County Community School Corporation, Bloomington, Ind.; John Newport, Vigo County School Corporation, Terre Haute, Ind.; Devon Roberts, Jefferson County Public Schools, Shelbyville, Ky.; and Cade Smith, Georgetown Independent School District, Georgetown, Texas.
The AASA Educational Administration Scholarship was created in 1949 to provide incentives, recognition and financial assistance to outstanding graduate students in school administration who intend to make the school superintendency a career. AASA selects recipients on the basis of their experience and excellence in school administration, personal essays and recommendations from university faculty.
