Zuspann Chosen for Inaugural Scholarship

Ste. Genevieve High School chemistry teacher Steve Zuspann has been selected as the inaugural honoree of the James and Margaret Mudd Teacher Recognition Scholarship.

Thirty-nine teachers were nominated by spring graduates for the significant impact they made in their students’ lives.

A selection committee reviewed the candidates, and based on essays written by seniors Jenna McClanahan and Nicole Boyer, Zuspann was selected as this year’s honoree.

Zuspann will be recognized during the Spring 2013 Commencement Ceremony and a $1,000 scholarship will be given in his honor to an incoming Truman student from Ste. Genevieve High School. 

Since its origin as the North Missouri Normal School in 1867, Truman State University has been committed to providing a strong teacher education program. Over the years, more than 8,000 teachers have received their preparation at the University, and the dedication to teacher programs is deeply rooted in the University’s history.
