Class of ’54 Commitment To Teaching Alumni Fellowship

Amherst is proud of its recent graduates who have chosen to teach in urban and other school systems where students may be considered “at risk” or are socio-economically disadvantaged.  Through the generosity of the Class of 1954, which has established a Commitment to Teaching Fund, Amherst is able each year to award stipends to a limited number of Amherst graduates who have been teaching for ten years or less.


The 2008 awardee biographies are listed immediately below along with a snapshot of the school they work in, and an inspirational quote.
