McDaniel College affirms its commitment to education by recognizing elementary and secondary school employees for their good work in preparing the next generation of leaders. McDaniel’s Educator’s Legacy Scholarship is available to the children of any K–12 school employee with four or more years of current and consecutive full-time employment with a school or district. This $100,000 scholarship will be awarded at an annual rate of $25,000 per year as long as the student is admitted and maintains continuous enrollment. Excellent teaching is McDaniel College’s priority and legacy. The college’s expert faculty mentors empower students to achieve their personal best, and many of McDaniel’s graduates go on to become top K–12 educators. Since 2010, four of McDaniel’s graduates have been named state Teachers of the Year, including the 2011 National Teacher of the Year, Michelle Shearer.
