Carrie Lee Peyton was passionate about education and what it meant for everyone. The empathy she exuded was relative and she always wanted the best for everyone, no matter what the situation.

Many would describe Carrie as a powerhouse who housed a love for education in her spirit. The mountains of illiteracy that she moved helped countless children recognize their own power, all while believing in their own worth. She had a pure heart and loved genuinely, and knew that love was the best defense against evil. Her wisdom allowed her to see what others did not see and for that, she left behind an incredible legacy for future educators and students. 

This scholarship aims to support a BIPOC student, and a teacher who has student debt who is committed to community advocacy.

The first award will go to a BIPOC high school junior or senior who is interested in studying education. The second will go to a BIPOC teacher who has student debt, is committed to community advocacy, and has a classroom that offers support to their students. 

To apply as a student, tell us about the challenges you have faced through your education and how you’ll help other students overcome these challenges through your career. To apply as a teacher, tell us how you’re advocating for social justice and how you incorporate this in your everyday classroom activities.
