Three Noble County students receive educator scholarships | News Sun


INDIANAPOLIS — Noble County Rep. Dave Abbott announced and congratulated three Noble County students heading toward careers in education for receiving the Next Generation Hoosier Educators Scholarshop.

The scholarship program, established in 2016 through legislation supported by the Indiana General Assembly, awards $7,500 per year to 200 high-achieving students.

The state formed the program in response a shortage of students seeking degrees in education fields in hopes of incentivizing more Hoosiers to pursue teaching as a career and prevent long-term educator shortages.
