[06/18/21]   FUTURE EDUCATORS RECEIVE AWARD

In June 2021, the Loudoun Education Association (LEA) awarded $4000 in scholarships to future educators: Ashley Edsall from Freedom HS; Lindsay Staub from Broad Run HS; Abigail Thomas from Woodgrove HS and Ashleigh Trudell from Heritage HS. Each of these future educators received a $1,000 scholarship to further their academic endeavors.

LEA raised money for these scholarships with the assistance of LEA members and fundraising events. These students were carefully selected by the LEA Scholarship Committee: Christina Ramirez, Scholarship ChairPerson (Kindergarten Teacher), Tim Brown (High School Spanish Teacher), Dolores Bendel (Middle School Registrar), Celeste Liscouski and Patricia Lockwood (both retired teachers and LEA members).

The LEA is an advocacy organization for quality public schools and public school employees where members work collaboratively and organize for action to reach the common goals of the Association. LEA membership is available to all of the Loudoun County Public School employees. The LEA is over 3,800 members strong and continues to grow. LEA is an affiliate of the Virginia Education Association and the National Education Association.
