JAM Paper Awards Scholarship to Future Teacher
Jampaper.com’s Second Annual Scholarship Award Goes to Anna Li, a Master’s Student Pursing a Career in Education.
NORTHVALE, N.J. – Aug. 19, 2015 — JAM Paper & Envelope (www.jampaper.com) announced today the winner of it’s second annual JAM Paper Teacher Scholarship, an award given every August to a student pursuing a career in education.
The scholarship was awarded to Anna Li, a Wheaton College graduate who will be teaching at Urban Prep Charter Academy while pursuing a Master of Arts in Teaching Degree.”I want to create opportunities for my students to be empowered by their own words and writing,” said Li. “I don’t think there’s anything more powerful than a student realizing his or her own potential, the potential that you have seen in them all along.”
The JAM Paper Teacher Scholarship was created in 2014 to ease the financial burden that many educators endure through rising tuition costs and school district paycuts.”Much of our business comes from teachers buying school supplies, not just for themselves, but for their students,” said Andrew Jacobs, COO of JAM. “These loving teachers sacrifice their own money to ensure their students have the right tools to succeed. It’s only right we give back to them.”
