2011 Associated Electric Scholarship
Hannah Broz is a graduate of Montgomery County R-II High School, Montgomery City, Missouri. She is currently attending William Woods University - Fulton, Missouri, majoring in Elementary Education.
The great Aristotle once said, "A great city is not to be confounded with a populous one." Just because a city is large does not mean that it is the best place to live. Growing up, I did not appreciate rural life. After a move to the city, I realized it wasn't as great as I thought it would be. I quickly realized how much I appreciated the rural way of life. The enjoyment of living in a rural area is truly a rural community where everyone looks out for each other. This last year, Hannah shares that she had the opportunity to substitute teach in her school district and it was a real eye opening experience. From this experience, Hannah indicates she is sure she wants to teach kids what she has to offer and who needs help educationally. "I want to make a difference in today's youth, not just be another teacher."
One of her former teachers shares that the most important thing to be said about Hannah is her sense of responsibility in serving others. Since I have known Hannah, she has consistently spoken of pursuing an education in order to better serve those less fortunate. Hannah is one who is not afraid to work hard for what is important to her.
One of her college instructors shares that Hannah embraces learning. She dedicates herself to learning everything she can about how students learn as well as best teaching practices. She completes activities calmly and quietly, yet efficiently and thoroughly awarding her the opportunity to be an outstanding and highly qualified teacher and teacher-leader.
With a philosophy of wanting to make a difference in a child's life, we extent congratulations to Hannah Broz, the 2011 Associated Electric Scholarship recipient.
