The Raymond R. Delaney Memorial Scholarship

Congratulations to the 2016 Raymond R. Delaney Memorial scholarship winner Carolyn J. Probst. Carolyn was nominated because she is an outstanding educational leader who is a consensus builder and creative problem solver. 

Most recently, she was a key player in the development and implementation of an interdisciplinary teaming approach for ninth grade students. Her intellect coupled with her strong sense of dedication, compassion and genuine concern for others propelled her to apply and have her school accepted as a College Board AP Capstone School. Carolyn has earned three graduate degrees from Columbia University and is currently enrolled in the highly regarded doctoral program at Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College of Education. 

This years award was sponsored by Signature Partner Utica National Insurance Group.
