Idaho Retired Educators Donate $2,500 for College of Education Students Scholarships
February 10, 2022
In February, the Southeast Idaho Retired Educators Association (SEIREA) donated $2,500 to Idaho State’s College of Education that will be used for student scholarships. SEIREA President and retired teacher Ronda Black presented the check to College of Education Dean Jean McGivney-Burelle and College of Education Development Officer Tabatha Butler at their monthly SEIREA meeting.
“We just really want to see young people go into education. Teaching is one of the most valued professions there is, and we want it to be as easy as possible for students to not only pursue their passions, but also to not be burdened with thousands of dollars of debt,” Black said.
The Southeast Idaho Retired Educators Association (SEIREA) is a network of retired educators in the region who are committed to serving those in need within our community and to providing opportunities to future educators. Over the years the organization has generously supported many future educators.
“In the College of Education we are committed to making scholarships a central focus of our fundraising efforts and operational plan so that all students who want to pursue a degree in the College of Education have the support they need to achieve their academic and career goals. We are grateful for SEIREA’s continued support and for this generous gift, ” McGivney-Burelle said.
