DEBBIE HARTZ MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND The Evansville Teachers Association, in partnership with the EVSC Foundation, is pleased to announce the establishment of the Debbie Hartz Memorial Scholarship Fund, in honor of Debbie Hartz, who passed away on November 20, 2014 after a four-year battle with cancer. In few words, Debbie was a fierce advocate and passionate educator. All who met her were left with an indelible impression, whether it be from a bit of knowledge she shared, a story about her boys or grandkids, who she loved dearly, or her beautiful and infectious laugh. Those who knew her well were inspired by the courage and positivism with which she faced and fought her cancer. Over her nearly 38 years of service to EVSC as an elementary or middle school teacher, curriculum expert, district coach, or supervisor, it is likely that nearly every student or teacher has been somehow touched by the work of Debbie, and for that all are grateful. The fund will provide scholarships for professional development for EVSC educators, something about which Debbie was truly passionate.
Thanks to the generosity of ETA, any donation to the fund of $500 or less will be matched, up to a total of $5,000. Individuals wishing to make a tax deductible contribution to the Debbie Hartz Memorial Scholarship fund may do so by credit card online by clicking here and including “Debbie Hartz Memorial Scholarship” on the online form.
