A new scholarship has been established at Iowa Lakes Community College to benefit students majoring in Human Services/Disability Studies or those pursuing an Education transfer.
The JAMSL scholarship was established by Jody Condon in honor of and named after local dedicated educators and professionals who work with students at all learning levels and capabilities.
Condon has a great passion for education and quoted Brandi Snyder in recognizing those educators: "To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world."
Educators have an important influence on the lives of young people.
"Every individual who comes into contact with a student plays a significant role in helping them succeed," Condon said. "Whether you are the principal in a school, a teacher in a classroom, or the secretary in the office, those relationships are key to fostering a love for learning and succeeding in life."
"I have been fortunate enough to work with some of the most dedicated and caring people in education. This is my way of thanking and honoring that commitment and to pay it forward to Iowa Lakes Community College students," Condon said.
The JAMSL scholarship is a $500 award for one recipient to use toward tuition, books, and fees. The candidate must be enrolled full time in the Human Services/Disability studies or Education transfer. Preference is given to a student who can show/tell how they overcame a personal hardship or obstacle.
