You’ve successfully navigated the college application process. Now begins the long wait for admission decisions, and one productive way to expend all that anxious energy is to apply for scholarships. Scholarship deadlines come up year-round and a good number each year go unclaimed. There are tons of scholarships available from all manner of organizations, so everybody should apply, even students who might have the greatest grades or test scores, says Jordan High School’s scholarship specialist Lisa Petersen. “A lot of people think that it’s scary. Don’t be afraid,” Petersen said. In this informative episode of Connect Canyons, Petersen offers a plethora of insight on where to start the process and what to do to give yourself the best opportunity at earning available funds to lighten the financial load.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
