Four Northwestern Oklahoma State University seniors were awarded the Guthrie Scottish Rite Scholarship given by the Guthrie Scottish Rite Charitable and Educational Foundation.

Those awarded this semester are Jordan Brewer of Woodward, elementary education; Jordan Harris of Kremlin, health and sports science education; Rachel Locke of Newkirk, English education; and Laura Reed of Erick, elementary education.

Each semester the scholarships are awarded to teacher candidates who are completing their professional semester. Selections are made based upon an essay stating each applicant’s professional goals and challenges that have been overcome to earn a bachelor’s degree from Northwestern.

Dr. James Bell, associate vice president for academics and dean of faculty, and Dr. Christee Jenlink, associate dean of education and professor of education, presented the students their scholarship.

The Guthrie Scottish Rite Charitable and Educational Foundation works primarily with children with language and/or reading disorders. Recipients are chosen by members of the Teacher Education faculty who have reviewed all applications and voted for the candidate they felt was the best choice.

For more information on the Guthrie Scottish Rite scholarship or the Division of Education, contact Jenlink at (580) 327-8450 or email cljenlink@nwosu.edu.
