Fort Zumwalt West High School social studies teacher Andrew LeFors was selected as the James and Margaret Mudd Teacher Recognition Scholarship honoree.
Spring graduates nominated 21 teachers whom they feel made a significant impact on their lives as students. A selection committee reviewed the candidates and based on essays written by seniors Alexandra Currie and Lindsey Wolf, LeFors was selected as this year’s honoree.
LeFors was recognized during the Spring 2014 Commencement Ceremony and a $1,000 scholarship will be given in his honor to an incoming Truman student from Fort Zumwalt West High School.
Since its origin as the North Missouri Normal School in 1867, Truman has been committed to providing a strong teacher education program. Over the years, thousands of teachers have received their preparation at the University, and the dedication to teacher programs is deeply rooted in the University’s history.
