CUA awards first Men of Color/Educators of Tomorrow scholarship

The Men of Color/Educators of Tomorrow program has awarded its first scholarship, thanks to a donation from Credit Union of America. Timothy Reynolds, elementary education major, is the recipient of the $5,000 scholarship and was presented with the award Nov. 21 at Credit Union of America.

The Men of Color/Educators of Tomorrow program, housed in the College of Applied Studies (CAS), launched last year. Its purpose is to support and develop leadership skills in Men of Color with high academic potential and a commitment to teach.

The scholarship awarded to Reynolds is part of the recently renewed five-year partnership between Credit Union of America and the CAS. The partnership spans multiple programs, including the Teacher Apprentice Program and Corbin Connect.
