The John Cary Scholarships are given in honor of John Cary, former Superintendent of Schools for the Special School District. As superintendent, John gave tirelessly of his time to students, staff and parents. A hallmark of John’s leadership was the caring and generous hand he extended to the Special Education Foundation. The John Cary Scholarships will be given to graduating students who receive services from the Special School District of St. Louis County – special education and/or technical education. The selected students will reflect the characteristics most admired by John Cary – resiliency, courage and determination.
The Special Education Foundation’s John Cary Scholarships are for $5,000 and can be used for tuition only. The scholarship must be used during the 2019-2020 school year. Selection is determined by a committee comprised of SEF Board, SSD Board, SSD Superintendent, former superintendents and Carol Cary.
Items considered for awarding of scholarships are:
Letters of Recommendation - Two letters are required. One letter should be from the student’s SSD teacher. The other should be from a professional (school counselor, minister, etc.)
Teacher Application Requirements: The absence of the teacher's letter of recommendation will disqualify the student's application or adversely impact the student's evaluation.
