UGA elementary education students Heidi Beamon and Stacy Schwartz have been awarded D. Keith Osborn Scholarships in recognition of their academic achievement.
Beamon, of Albany, was awarded the scholarship as the department’s Outstanding Senior for 2003-04. Schwartz, of Atlanta, was named the Outstanding Graduate Student for 2003-04. The $500 scholarships come from a fund established
by the department to honor a former faculty colleague.
A pioneer in early childhood education, Osborn was a professor of education and child development for 26 years at the College of Education. From 1980 to 1993, he was also graduate coordinator for the department of elementary education.
