Profiles in Passion - Emily Felker

Emily Felker, a senior music education major with a concentration in violin performance, was practically born into her major. As a result of her parents being both music teachers and her role models, Emily began playing violin at an early age. Emily was drawn to Marywood, primarily because of its faculty, but also because of the overall welcoming nature of the university and the more individualized attention she receives as a result of Marywood’s small size. While Emily auditioned for two schools, the faculty at Marywood stood out. Emily said, “The teachers stood out to me at Marywood. Meeting with Sophie Till, associate professor of violin and viola, was the deciding factor in choosing Marywood. Faculty absolutely play a key role in the final decision process.” Read more about Emily's passion for music by clicking on the headline link.

Jason Holman Receives NSF Robert Noyce Teachers Scholarship to Advance STEM Studies

Marywood University recently awarded the National Science Foundation (NSF) Robert Noyce Teachers Scholarship to Jason Holman, Taylor, Pa., junior mathematics/secondary education major. A graduate of Riverside High School, Holman is benefiting from the tuition coverage of the scholarship, as well as the connections that he’s making with faculty and staff on the University’s campus. Marywood’s Advancing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) Teaching (MAST) Program is a scholarship opportunity for biology and math secondary education majors. MAST scholars earn bachelor’s degrees in biology or math and are eligible for a Pennsylvania secondary teaching certification in biology or mathematics. Jason learned of the NSF Robert Noyce Teachers Scholarship from a science professor, and then the message was reinforced by Dhanapati Adhikari, Ph.D., associate professor of mathematics/computer science. Dr. Adhikari explained that students are eligible to apply for the scholarship during their sophomore year, or after passing their sophomore screening for education. After applying, students are invited for an interview and get a status notification by May 1 each year.
