Local public schools and their educators have produced America’s most brilliant artists, scientists, doctors, musicians, lawyers, presidents, and more — people from all walks of life, contributing to society in countless ways.
To celebrate public high school graduates and the educators who helped them along their path, Schott held our first Proud #PublicSchoolGrad scholarship contest. Out of hundreds of entrants, we're proud to announce that Breanna Hall is the winner!
Breanna is a 2019 graduate of Ramsay High School, in Birmingham, Alabama and has been accepted to Alcorn State University. Throughout her high school career Breanna has shown commitment to community service and helping others through Future Teachers of Alabama. Breanna says she was inspired by one teacher in particular, Dr. Tineka B. Peoples, to become an educator herself after college:
"Dr. Peoples is an exemplary person and an ideal teacher. I have been greatly influenced by her honesty, talent, and selflessness. She saw my potential and I am so grateful to have her in my life. The way that she cares for her students and her teaching style inspired me so much that I have decided to become a teacher."
We were impressed by all the students who entered and wish them the best in their college careers — and we look forward to Breanna educating the next generation of proud public school grads!
Help us congratulate Breanna on social media:
