Independence resident Mallory Rose was recently surprised with a $2,500 Become a Teacher Scholarship to WGU Missouri. The scholarship can be applied toward any of WGU’s Teachers College degree programs leading to teacher licensure and includes a $1,500 stipend that will be applied to the in-classroom observation and student teaching term.


Rose, a resource instructional assistant at Little Blue Elementary School in the Raytown School District, is pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Special Education and Elementary Education (Dual Licensure) from WGU Missouri. She was virtually presented with the scholarship on March 5 by WGU Strategic Partnerships Manager Jim Chandler.
