New Teacher Scholarship Fund in Honor of Founding Dean Harold Levine
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.
“Many students come to the School of Education not knowing how
they will afford tuition, but taking the risk because they
believe in the School’s vision and know they will receive an
exceptional education,” Sandi and Ken said. “Like Dean Levine, we
believe that all students should have access to a high-quality
education, regardless of income, first language, address,
learning challenges, or race. We hope this scholarship will help
to recruit and retain academically promising students.”
Tom and Nancy Patten, also generous supporters of
the School, have not only fully matched the scholarship but will
match additional donations up to $10,000, making gifts go twice
as far. The Pattens hope to inspire other donors to support the
cause of education and future educators.
