    Student Travel Grant Scholarship Testimonial
    “The 2016 National Council of Teachers of English annual convention has proven to be one of the most incredible and eye-opening experiences I have had during my undergraduate career. I feel fortunate to have attended and presented at such a gathering before having started my career in secondary English education. I was able to make new connections with people I plan to stay in touch with for years to come. It was an irreplaceable experience and I highly encourage English Education students to attend! My sincere gratitude goes to the Lee Honors College for providing me with the funding that made this experience possible. I am very grateful.”

    – Alice Kinney, Spanish and English Secondary Education Major
