Betty West Memorial Scholarship

This scholarship was established in honor of Betty West, who taught 1st and 2nd grades in the Albion Primary School for 35 years, retiring in 1993. From childhood, her desire was always to become an educator – even gathering her dolls and stuffed animals to teach them in her “classroom”. This scholarship is funded by both generous contributions and West family contributions and awarded to an Albion High School Senior with the same passion for teaching.

Selection criteria:
Pursuance of a bachelor’s degree in education, essay, community involvement.
