April 21, 2022
On Monday, April 4th, the CEHD’s Development team was able to gather with the Hattie M. Strong Foundation representatives, Robin Tanner, Mary Lou Cantrell, and recipients of the Hattie M. Strong Foundation (HMSF) Scholarship for a meet and greet and dinner. This was the first time since the pandemic that the group was able to meet and spend time together. Recipients included: Lionardo Quezada Guevara, Anna Izabela Preston (not pictured), Angelica Y. Lovelace, Natasha Nicole Jeter, and Melanie J. Oliva Ordonez. Roberto Pamas, EdD, Associate Professor and Director of TEACHERtrack@Mason, was also in attendance. It was extremely refreshing to celebrate the achievements and ambitions of these students. Their stories demonstrate that they are making great impacts in their schools and communities.

The Hattie M. Strong Foundation is a charitable private foundation incorporated in the District of Columbia in 1928. The Foundation’s activities consist of the administration of a scholarship program that is aimed at college students enrolled in teacher-training programs at select partnering institutions. The Foundation’s current priority is to assist organizations that provide out-of-school-time programming.
The Hattie M. Strong Foundation Scholarship is presented to students who are in their final year of enrollment in an initial teacher preparation licensure program through the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD). The candidates must have academic merit and financial need.
We truly appreciate The Hattie Strong Foundation’s continued support of Mason’s College of Education and Human Development and providing scholarship opportunities to future educators in our area.
