Donors like James and Connie Maynard are making a difference in recruiting and retaining quality teachers in eastern North Carolina. The Maynard Scholars program awards the top 10 incoming freshmen who plan to teach in eastern NC a four year $20,000 scholarship. Not only do these students get a $20,000 scholarship, they also live in an education housing community and have unique enrichment activities that will help them be a successful teacher. If you are interesting in providing scholarships to future educators, please contact Development Officer, Kendra Alexander, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
