Cross High School’s Robert Seay is one of 10 teachers in the state to receive the 2021 Dr. Elizabeth Gressette Professional Development Scholarship this week.
The scholarship sponsored by the Palmetto State Teachers Association’s Foundation for Professional development is awarded annually to encourage PSTA members to pursue advanced degrees.
Mr. Seay, department chair of Social Studies and ELA at Cross High, said being awarded the scholarship will be extremely helpful to his lifelong goal of earning his Doctorate Degree. He will have the degree in 2021, and his work to achieving the Ed.D. in Global Training and Development has not come without sacrifice. He plans to use the funds to offset expenses incurred.
"I am grateful for the love and support I've received from my coworkers, administrators, friends, family, and of course, the Palmetto State Teachers Association," he said.
