APH SCHOLAR PROGRAM
Each nominee must submit a formal letter of intent that includes:
Members of the APH Educational Services Advisory Committee (ESAC) are challenged with the task of selecting five of the nominations. Applications are scored on the above criteria to determine selection for attendance at the APH Annual Meeting. Many of our Scholars have gone on to become EOTs, to be recognized by their peers as outstanding teachers, and to receive other awards and accolades.
Beginning in 2016, APH offered the opportunity for two of the previous year Scholars to participate in the spring meetings. Selected Scholars are expected to attend all meetings of the committee, sitting in on presentations and dialogs with APH staff. Scholars will participate in the building of the committee reports, with commendations and recommendations provided for APH. also, each Scholar is asked to prepare a short report with reflections on the experience and two or three additional “take away” thoughts. APH will assign one Scholar to each of the two committees for the duration of the meeting.
My APH Experience
In 2018 I was honored to be nominated by Carson Cochran, Ex Officio Trustee, and program manager of the Georgia Instructional Materials Center. I was selected as one of the five 2018 APH Scholars. Fellow 2018 APH scholars included Yvonne Franz, Krystal Guillory, Donna Hultman, and Eric Shaw.
In February 2019, the 2018 APH scholars were contacted about our interest in further participation. I applied and was accepted to attend and participate in the spring EPAC/ESAC meetings along with Donna Hultman and Eric Shaw. We were tasked with providing APH with feedback on how to engage teachers, the scholar experience, unique networking, collaboration, and identifying issues and needs in the field.
