Longstanding School of Education supporters Sandi Redenbach (’72, Credential ’73) and Ken Gelatt (’67, Credential ’68) have generously established an endowed scholarship fund to show their appreciation for Founding Dean Harold Levine’s accomplishments and to celebrate his well-earned retirement.
The Sandi Redenbach and Ken Gelatt Teaching Credential STEM Scholarship in Honor of Dean Harold G. Levine will be awarded to a teaching credential student with a career focus on STEM subjects in public schools.
In California, the demand for professionals in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields will grow nearly 20 percent by 2018. Yet too few students are choosing STEM fields. Nancy (’74, Cred ’75) and Tom Patten (’74, MS ’76) believe that enthusiastic and well-prepared teachers are the key to unlocking the state’s potential for innovation and prosperity. To help train the next generation of STEM teachers, the Pattens have pledged $100,000 to establish a new matching fund for the School of Education: the Next Generation STEM Teaching Award. The fund will support scholarships for School of Education teaching credential students who have the interest, passion, and aptitude to teach STEM-related subjects in K-12 public schools.
By preparing UC Davis educators to inspire the next generation of students to pursue STEM majors and careers, the School of Education strengthens California’s and the nation’s ability to tap the true potential of its future innovators.
