The scholarship will cover an EDU 110 – Intro to Education course, tuition and books, for up to 20 individuals who are interested in entering or exploring the Educa- tion field. There may be additional scholarship funds available for fu- ture coursework, dependent upon number of scholarships utilized this semester. Individuals who participate in this program will be introduced to Arizo- na Western College and opportuni- ties to pursue a degree in Education. Additionally, scholarship recipients will participate in three separate (mandatory) workshops which will support a clear path to success and completion by introducing stu- dents to financial resources, faculty and advisors, and support services available locally and district-wide. Students will also gain hands-on experience and observation time within classrooms through collabo- rating school districts. Workshops: 1. Your Goal, Your Success – Stu- dents will work with the facilitator to discuss potential barriers (inter- nal and external) of success, how to manage and eventually breakdown barriers, determine what success looks like (from the perspective of the student), and introduce students to the different services available which support student success. 2. Navigating Your Degree – AWC to University: AWC Advisor and uni- versity partners from ASU and NAU will provide a workshop on best de- gree majors, program specialties, and opportunities of transferring from AWC to a university. Advisors will also assist students in tailoring their degree to meet personal goals and university requirements. 3. Financing Your Future – Schol- arship and grant opportunities to reduce or eliminate college debt. "We are committed to our part- nering school districts and would like to help with developing a 'Grow Your Own Teacher Program' where individuals will be able to complete both their associate's and bache- lor's degree while staying within La Paz County. Technology based plat- forms such as Interactive Television Network and Zoom will allow and support individuals who are com- mitted to earning a degree in edu- cation while staying at home and within our community," said Robin Cooper, Center Assistant Quartzsite Campus.The DEADLINE to apply is: February 25, 2019 Please contact the AWC Parker Learning Center at 928-669-2214 or the AWC Quartzsite Learning Center at 928-927-5500. AWC La Paz offers an opportunity for EDU/Teaching Professionals The Featured Artist for the upcoming Quilt Show on February 8th and 9th is Linda Woodruff. There is no one more worthy of this title. Linda grew up in Iona Kansas. She started sewing when she was just a child. Linda and her mother would make clothes for the family out of feed sacks. She continued her love of sewing by learning to quilt 30 years ago. For years she taught craft classes in Idaho and has continued her love of quilting even though she was diagnosed with macular degeneration several years ago. She continues to complete many quilts and the work is no less than extraordinary. She loves every aspect of sewing including embroidery as you will see on display at the quilt show at the Quartzsite Senior Center located on Moon Mountain Ave, Quartzsite. By Jackie Deal BAREFOOT AND BOOTS, the longest running band in the Quartzsite area is saying a fond, tearful farewell: NO, not quite!
