Doctoral students awarded memorial scholarship

Georgia Southern University’s Bryan Deever Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Sequaya Chapman and Marshall Parrent during the Curriculum Studies Doctoral Program Orientation on April 22. Each student was awarded $880 toward tuition for their Ed.D. in Curriculum Studies. 

Grateful for the scholarship, Chapman says, “This award means that I don’t have to worry about paying my full tuition for this upcoming fall semester and can focus on writing my dissertation.”

For two decades, the Bryan Deever Memorial Scholarship has honored the legacy of Bryan Deever, Ph.D., a faculty member in the Department of Curriculum, Foundations, and Research from 1989 until his tragic death in 2000. Deever’s contributions included the creation of the Doctoral program in Curriculum Studies.

Honored by the recognition, Parrent says, “Dr. Deever’s work taught me that altering education for the better will indeed be a Herculean task, but a goal we must strive for regardless of the challenges ahead, and with courage and conviction.”
