The Honorary Sorority for Teachers Annual Scholarship

The Honorary Sorority for Teachers (Alpha Delta Kappa) selected Robert Mugford as the recipient for their annual scholarship. Each year the group donates a $1,000 scholarship to help pay for instruction for any prospective "teacher-in-training" that is currently in a credential program, or thinking of entering one.

Mugford, a Newark native, currently resides in Fremont and attended CSU Hayward where he earned his degree in Mathematics. He discovered his love for teaching in 2001 when he first taught at Fremont Christian School. He is actively interning at Cesar Chavez Middle School in Union City, teaching math. He was recommended by a supervisor at the university, and was voted in by the Sorority to receive money.

The Sorority, comprised of active and retired educators, grants the scholarship each year in hopes of encouraging others to explore teaching as a career. Despite a shortage of school teachers in the area, the Sorority hopes that by helping to pay for tuition, more people will be interested in teaching as a career.

Mugford was presented with half of the money during an annual holiday dinner meeting held by the Sorority. He will receive the second half in May.
