The David Augusta Unit Scholarships Application 2023


David Augusta was a lifelong passionate member for public education and served ECOEA as President and Executive Director. David also served on the OEA Board of Directors representing ECOEA and as an NEA Director. David retired from Louisville City Schools and continued his career as an educator at Stark State College. David was instrumental in establishing the Unit Scholarships so it is a fitting memorial that they be named in his honor.

The Unit Scholarship Drawing will be held at an ECOEA meeting and announced at the ECOEA Fall Delegate Briefing on November 18. Three scholarships (one from each of the three ECOEA voting units) of $500 will be awarded. The winners must certify the scholarship will be used for continuing education not covered by their local school district, and documentation submitted by August 31, 2024. The scholarship is by reimbursement when the documentation is submitted.

The 2023 Augusta Unit Scholarship recipients are:

Unit 1-Jennifer Martinez, East Canton Education Association

Unit 2-Caryn Rubio, East Holmes Teachers’ Association

Unit 3-Katie Barber, North Canton Education Association
