2016 Anne Bostwick Memorial Scholarship
Goldstein, Washington, and Fox
September 2016 marked the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Anne Bostwick Scholarship Fund. The fund was started by friends and family members as a way to honor the memory of Anne, a highly respected and beloved counselor at New Directions Career Center (NDCC), who died in a tragic automobile accident. The Bostwick Scholarship is awarded annually to a graduate of the Center, who needs further education to reach her goals.

We are proud to feature the 2016 Anne Bostwick Memorial Scholarship winner, Tamara Washington. Tamara came to the Center in 2014, and graduated from one of our core programs, New Directions. Tamara is a single mother of two boys, and is currently working as a substitute teacher. Tamara said, "the New Directions class has had and is still having a huge impact on my life. We looked at so many small parts that make up the whole and I came to the realization that it's understanding how all of these factors affect who we are, where we've been, and more importantly where we are going." Tamara's educational goal is to complete the 24 semester hours that the Ohio Department of Education will require in order for her to become a licensed educator. Tamara hopes to teach High School level Language Arts and hopes that her career as a teacher will allow her to make a positive impact on students on a daily basis. Tamara, we can't wait to stand beside you on your journey to success!
