BURROUGHS EDUCATION SCHOLARSHIP: $2,500 FOR COLLEGE
This scholarship is named in honor of Dr. Stacy Burroughs. Dr. Burroughs has dedicated his life to education. During his teaching career in Indiana, he taught music to middle and high school students. He later went on to supervise student teachers working toward teaching degrees at the University of Illinois in Springfield.
For the last 38 years of his career, he represented and helped educate teachers and support professionals on behalf of the Illinois Education Association (IEA). In 1985, the IEA Representative Assembly nominated and hired Dr. Burroughs as the first IEA Educational Support Professionals Director. He held this position until he retired in 2010. As the ESP Director, he worked to bring recognition to the contributions that support professionals—such as custodians, bus drivers, and cooks—made to the education system across the state.
This scholarship recognizes the dedication and hard work of school employees by assisting their children in their educational pursuits.
Applicants of the 2020 Burroughs Education Scholarship must meet the following requirements:
- Be a graduating high school senior heading to college
- Have at least one parent or legal guardian who is a school employee
Additionally, the scholarship is awarded based on academic achievement, career goals, and character.
Applications will be accepted starting 10/1/19 through January 31, 2020.
The Burroughs Education Scholarship award will be announced in late February 2020.
THE DUPAGE BAR FOUNDATION LAW STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP
Since 2015, Woodruff Johnson & Evans Law Offices has been proud to partner with the DuPage Bar Foundation to provide a $2,000 DuPage Bar Foundation Law Student Scholarship. This joint venture between our firm and the foundation sought to award deserving law students in the DuPage area.
