Frances was a woman who couldn't go to college because of World War II, but she didn’t let that stop her from pursuing an education. Instead, she read every book that she could get her hands on, memorized poems and prose, and played music throughout her life. 

Her daughter, Loretta was a passionate and devoted Spanish teacher whose students learned much more than the Spanish language when they came to her class. Not only was she an excellent teacher, but she was also an avid artist.

Frances and Loretta were strong and resilient women who not only pursued their own love for learning, teaching, and the arts, but they also inspired others to see the joys in learning for themselves. 

This scholarship is meant for a student who is passionate about learning, the arts, and becoming a future teacher. 

Any high school senior who is planning to pursue a career as an art, music, or humanities teacher may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us about a teacher in your life who inspired you throughout your educational journey, and why you want to become a teacher yourself.
