FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail STATEHOUSE (Dec. 15, 2016) — The deadline to apply for the Next Generation Teacher Scholarship, paying $7,500 per year for students pursuing a career in education, is Dec. 31, according to State Rep. Holli Sullivan (R-Evansville). Sullivan supported the creation of this scholarship to help incentivize top-performing students to pursue a career teaching in Hoosier classrooms.“As the mother of a college freshman, I understand the costs of higher education,” Sullivan said. “These funds will help families and students by decreasing student-loan debt. I also have one child in high school and one in elementary school, so I know firsthand the impact a good teacher can have on a student. This is an investment in our future.”The scholarship is available to 200 high-achieving high school and college students each year who either graduate in the top 20 percent of their class or earn a score in the top 20th percentile on the SAT or ACT. While in college, students must maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA and complete at least 30 credit hours per year to continue receiving the grant. The Next Generation Teacher Scholarship pays $7,500 per year for up to four years to students who obtain their teaching license and commit to teaching in Indiana for five consecutive years.Eligible students must be nominated by a teacher and submit their nomination form to the Indiana Commission for Higher Education. Students can visit www.LearnMoreIndiana.org/nextteacher for information and to submit an application before the deadline on Dec. 31.
Lindsey Pownall, the chief executive of Samworth Brothers, has reportedly decided to step down from the top job at the food group.According to reports in the Leicester Mercury she has decided to take early retirement, after four years in the role and 20 with the company, and will be replaced on 1 January 2016 by Alex Knight, a longstanding adviser to the Melton-based food manufacturer.The announcement of her departure comes in the same month as British Baker exclusively revealed that Paul Tripp, the highly influential managing director of Soreen, was to leave the business.Samworth Brothers reported a £837m turnover last year – more than 5% up on the previous year. Its brands include Ginsters, Dickinson & Morris pork pies, Walkers pork pies and Walkers sausages. It produces sandwiches, ready meals, pork pies, desserts and cakes for supermarkets including Marks & Spencer, Morrisons, Waitrose and Tesco.Knight said: “I have worked with many great businesses and organisations in my career, but Samworth Brothers has always stood out because of its unique ethos, strong values and its commitment to a long-term view.”Pownall is relocating to the Lake District, but will continue to advise the Samworth board.She added: “Alex is a brilliant replacement for me. We have found someone who can relate to running a family business. He has his own consultancy business and a history of working with lots of big businesses around the world.“Continuity is everything and I have used him extensively, particularly in the last four years, in helping me make our various companies work more collaboratively. The changes the company has seen have been as much his as mine.”
The raffle winner of a helmet at the annual Longwood Bike Fair did not have a bike to use it with but says her new helmet provided the extra push she needed to buy the bicycle she’d been thinking about. It’s exactly what organizers of the fair, held on Tuesday September 25, hoped they’d hear.Now in its second year, the Longwood Bike Fair was expanded this year thanks to the involvement of all three Schools at Longwood who partnered with many outside organizations to make the day a success — more than 300 people attended.The new Harvard Longwood Bicyclists club signed up 200 new members and raffled off helmets and gift certificates to local bike shops while mechanics from Quad Bikes and the Boston Cyclists Union provided free safety tune-ups. HMS Commuter Services and Parking gave away reflectors and leg bands while MASCO Commute Works encouraged attendees to register for the Commute Fit Program and the Emergency Ride Home Program. Harvard University Police Department and HMS Security were on hand to register bikes. Read Full Story
