Over 125 applications for the Debbie Rice Memorial Scholarship were received this year, three times as many as last year. Committee Chair, Barbara Burchard of Elmore County Schools, is to be commended for her efforts to raise awareness about this great opportunity for deserving Alabama students. The applications will soon be in the hands of the evaluation team and the winner will be notified as soon as possible. ALET members are looking forward to meeting the recipient at their conference in Montgomery in early March.
Debbie Rice was a beloved member of our organization and the former Technology Director for Auburn City Schools.
