Nan Schuman Klein Future Teacher Scholarship

Nancy Jo Schuman graduated from Illinois State University in 1973, earning a B.S. in education. She taught elementary school for more than four years and continued to take classes at the University to earn her M.S. in special education. Before she could complete her degree, she moved to California where she entered the business field and became a human resources executive. Many of the skills that she learned at Illinois State enabled her to lead and train her teams of employees to achieve success in their careers. Meanwhile she married and had one child. Nan never forgot her teaching years and has created this scholarship to support students in their dreams of becoming teachers. She also has a special regard for persons who come into teaching having been in a previous career. Those individuals will receive special attention in the application process.
