A message from R. Lee and Barbara A. Harris,
founding partners of the Tomorrow's Teacher Scholarship Program.
After many years in the business world, it has become apparent to us that the education of our youth is critical to the success of future generations. While this may seem to be an obvious statement, our society seems to lack a financial commitment to the teaching profession. In our opinion teachers are the unsung heroes of our society.
Barb and I were surprised to learn that there are relatively few scholarships offered at KSU to prospective teachers. Barb and I believe that much more must be done to attract the "best and the brightest" into the teaching profession - after all, why would we want anyone less educating our children?
We have established the Tomorrow's Teacher Scholarship Program in an effort to help the young people of Kansas realize that we support their desire to pursue careers in teaching. You too can show your support for the teachers of tomorrow.
Your contributions to the scholarship fund should be sent to the Kansas State University Foundation at the address shown below:
