Ken Bower Scholarship
Ken Bower, associate professor in the Department of Elementary and Early Childhood Education at the College of Charleston, died in 2002. During his career, he was avidly committed to public school students and the adults who work with them. When the Teacher Cadet Program began in 1986, Dr. Bower was asked to develop the first, full-scale curriculum.
Thanks to the success of the Silent Auctions held at annual professional development conferences, CERRA is pleased to offer FIVE $1,000.00 scholarships to help cover college expenses for the 2018-2019 school year.
