2019 SCHOLARSHIP WINNER

Joshua Gumlickpuk, originally from Dillingham, has been awarded the 2019 AKREA scholarship. Joshua is currently a fifth grade teacher at Chevak. He has been working on his  Masters Degree in Math, and will graduate from UAS in May, 2020.

Joshua writes: 2019 has been my very first year of professional teaching, which has thrown me a very challenging yet invigorating learning curve. I have learned a lot and I look forward to continuing this fulfilling profession…Ever since I was in elementary, I have always wanted to become a teacher. Growing up, I had teacher who inspired me to not only learn but to investigate and understand difficult concepts. In my first year of teaching, I have been working diligently on becoming this teacher for my students, especially in areas of math and science. ... I feel as if I can improve my skills in explaining mathematical concepts, which is why I am pursuing my Masters in Mathematical Education at the University of Alaska Southeast. ..I hope to inspire and encourage students across Alaska to understand and investigate things that they do not know, especially in math and science

The Scholarship committee in Seward read 35 applications, and finally narrowed the selection to two.  After much consultation, they were able to make their decision. AKREA congratulates Joshua on being selected from a large group of very deserving applicants, and is happy to welcome him into the profession.
