According to a 2013 Marketplace Morning report, 99.5% of American school teachers spend their own money on school supplies and instructional materials. All this while many are facing pay cuts. At JAM, we see hundreds of these selfless teachers come through our doors for binders, folders, paper and other school supplies. While we appreciate their business, we appreciate their sacrifices even more. To thank them, we will be holding an annual $500 scholarship to students studying education. This money can be used to buy supplies for classrooms they might be student teaching in, personal course supplies like textbooks or planners, or their own school supplies.
The importance of teachers cannot be understated. They are responsible for imparting children with knowledge during their most impressionable years.
Certain teachers have profound effects on their students. Teachers who connect with students at a young age have the ability to mold their futures. These children often become valuable additions to our society. At JAM Paper, we want to thank you aspiring teachers for guiding our younger generations by offering a rolling scholarship. This scholarship will be available every semester for the foreseeable future.
