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
