Maryville teacher is first recipient of new scholarship

MARYVILLE, Mo. - Northwest Missouri State's computer science and information systems department has announced a new scholarship intended for teachers pursuing master's degrees at the University.

The scholarship, known as the Graduate Business Education Scholarship, is given by Marilyn Hamm and the late Carolyn Elswick.

The scholarship will be awarded annually to a middle or secondary business education teacher who is pursuing a master's in teaching with an emphasis on instructional technology.

The scholarship's first recipient is John DeWeese of Maryville. DeWeese, who earned his bachelor's in business education at Northwest in 2005, teaches business education at the Northwest Technical School. He will complete his master's degree at Northwest in July.

Hamm earned her bachelor's from Northwest in accounting in 1996 and her master's of education in vocational business education in 2000. Hamm was a business education teacher, and she currently is an adjunct instructor and self-employed accountant.

Elswick, who lost her life to cancer at an early age, was a 1971 Northwest graduate. She had been employed as a news editor of the Maryville Daily Forum and a news reporter for the Nodaway News Leader.
