Bachelor of Education student Katrina Nedeljkovich has been awarded the Diane MacSavaney Scholarship Award from Ontario Chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa.
“I am beyond thankful to be receiving this scholarship,” Katrina says. “It is allowing me to carry on with my education and better myself as a future educator by pursuing further teaching qualifications.”
According to their website, the Alpha Delta Kappa is an international honorary organization of women educators dedicated to educational excellence, altruism, and world understanding. The Diane MacSavaney scholarship is to be given to an individual who is committed to pursuing a career in education, who demonstrates the qualities of an educational leader, and who exemplifies the goals of Alpha Delta Kappa.
Katrina explains that her work with Superior Science over the past years has enabled her to work with youth and become a better educator.
“Superior Science is a not-for-profit science program that offers youth in Grades 1-8 the opportunity to explore science, technology, engineering, and math in an interactive and hands-on environment. We provide opportunities to under-represented groups, like outreach workshops for Aboriginal youth and a girls-only weekend club that inspires females to explore the STEM fields. I am grateful to work for such an amazing program that inspires youth to accomplish something they may not have otherwise been able to pursue.”
Congratulations, Katrina, on winning this award!
