Rio Salado student Federico Poloni was awarded a $1,000 scholarship through the National Association of Community College Teacher Education Programs (NACCTEP).
Each year the NACCTEP Scholarship Committee reviews applications from teacher education students across the country. Poloni was one of two awardees.
He is a student in the Educator Preparation Program's undergraduate partnership with Northcentral University and will be completing a secondary certificate with a content focus of math education.
Poloni brings a strong background of mentorship with high school students and a passion for working with at-risk students.
Here's Poloni's way of saying thank you by way of video. For more details, visit nacctep.riosalado.edu.
NACCTEP is an affiliate of the Maricopa Community Colleges and operates out of Rio Salado College.
