Celebrating the June Gasparovich Scholarship

This week, City University of Seattle hosted a special event in honor of its June Gasparovich Scholarship. Annually, CityU has given $10,000 scholarships to two candidates in honor of this scholarship. After this week, there will only be one more scholarship left.

Recipients have come from the Seattle School District and have applied their scholarship toward tuition for a Bachelor of Arts in Education, Masters in Teaching, or a Master’s in Education Guidance & Counseling from CityU. Also, recipients have all been paraprofessionals with at least three years of experience and have maintained a 3.0 GPA while attending CityU.

This special scholarship is named after June Gasparovich, who was a Seattle Schools teacher for 28 years. June was born in 1914, went to school here in Seattle, earned her degree from the University of Washington, and was applauded by teachers and administrators for her exceptional teaching skills. June was active in several community organizations including Delta Kappa Gamma, this scholarship’s administrator. Delta Kappa Gamma is an honorary society promoting the teaching profession through Key Women Educators. June passed away in 2006 at the age of 91 and elected to give $100,000 in scholarship dollars to students going to CityU. Over the years, $80,000 of this fund has been used for scholarships.
