George O'Neill Memorial Scholarship
The George O'Neill Memorial Scholarship was established by PACEC in September 1981 following the untimely death of one of our most valued members, George O'Neill. It is fitting that this award is named after George because of his encouragement and support of student CEC members. He was never too busy to give advice to or spend time with future educators.
Application guidelines for this Award, a $1000 scholarship, are available by clicking here. Applications should be received by April 15. The award winner will be announced at the November PACEC Convention. The awards committee challenges each PA-SCEC chapter to nominate a student for this award. University or college professors, administrators, and educators also come in contact with excellent candidates and are encouraged to nominate a deserving student this year.
The awards committee for this scholarship would like to congratulate all of the past nominees. They are all winners in light of their dedication to children with exceptionalities and the field of special education. Their collective volunteer experiences are an inspiration to all CEC members. We look forward to their continued involvement when they complete their degrees and become special education professionals.
