CANE Scholarship Winners 2015
As chair of the 2015 CANE Scholarship Committee, it is my pleasure to announce the winners of this year’s CANE Scholarships.
Miss Laura DeMarse was the winner of the Thomas and Eleanor Means Fund award. Laura attends Bellows Free Academy in Vermont. Her Latin teacher, Mrs. Lydia Batten, organized a trip to Italy in late February. The group visited Milan, Venice, Florence, Assisi, Rome, Pompeii and Capri. Laura will send us a report with pictures from her trip; this will be posted on the CANE website.
The winner of the Cornelia Catlin Coulter Scholarship was Mr. John (Jake) Spearman. In 2006 Jake left a corporate career to become a Latin teacher, and he is currently teaching at Avon Old Farms School in Connecticut. He teaches all levels of Latin, including AP, as well as a popular history course called “Greece and Rome.” He will use the funds to attend the Summer Session of the School of Classical Studies at the American Academy in Rome.
This year’s Endowment Scholarship winner was Ms. Susan Zoller. Susan is a Latin teacher at Spaulding High School in Rochester, New Hampshire. She will be spending the summer at the Villa Vergiliana doing two study tours: Caesar and Vergil in Italy, and Naples Bay as Melting Pot, Always at a Boil.
Surprisingly, we had no applications for the Barker or Certification Scholarships this year. Please take some time to look at the various funding opportunities available through CANE (listed under the “Resources” tab), and send in an application yourself, or encourage someone else to do so.
Special thanks to the other members of this year’s Scholarship Committee, Stephany Pascetta and Barbara Weiden Boyd, for their time and effort in determining this year’s winners, and to my predecessor, Katy Ganino Reddick, for all of her guidance.
