Recipients of the James Patterson Teacher Education Scholarships shared their passion for cultivating a love for reading in their students. Each scholar has a story to tell, a goal to strive for and a passion for teaching (You might call this: the Patterson passion). Grant is a Patterson Scholar for 2017.
Grant is a third year who already has a lot of experience under his belt. He volunteers as a leader for his church youth group and is part of a planning team for a children’s summer camp in Juneau, Alaska.
“I became an education major because I have a lot of experience with kids at after-school programs and summer camps. I came to love teaching kids, especially being a role model for young boys.”
