Grantham University Scholarship Recipient Announced

Last week, we announced the recipient of the Grantham University Scholarship, Jamie Israel. Mrs. Israel is a high school teacher, a mother of two, a Staff Sergeant in the United States Air National Guard, and an AFA Member. She holds a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Criminal Justice from Missouri Western State University and a Bachelor’s of Science in Family and Consumer Sciences Education from Northwest Missouri State University. She has spent the last two years as a full-time high school teacher in Maysville, Missouri. Her dual role as an Airman/Educator makes her a wonderful example to the students she teaches and mentors.

This full scholarship bears a total value of just over $14,000 and covers the cost of all tuition, textbooks and fees for her Master’s degree.
With this scholarship, Mrs. Israel will be able to achieve a lifetime goal of earning her master’s degree for the benefit of her own education, as well as the education of her students. Mrs. Israel also has future career goals of teaching at the collegiate level.

Each year, the AFA partners with Grantham University to enable a greater promotion of education and an AFA’s partnership with Grantham has enabled a greater promotion of education and an opportunity to contribute to the academic success of many.

Congrats to Mrs. Israel!
