Arijhanna Mann, a sophomore majoring in pre-teacher education from Bolingbrook, Illinois, has always loved going to school. “Growing up, my parents and teachers were always very supportive of my education. School felt like a second home,” she recalls. When it came time to choose a university and a major, the choice was an easy one for Arijhanna. “I knew I wanted to attend Illinois and study to become a teacher.”
While she was confident she would find professors that would support her the same way her teachers always had, she was surprised to discover that College of Education alumni and friends were ready to lend a helping hand as well. “This year I was very grateful to be a recipient of a William Chandler Bagley Scholarship,” Arijhanna explains.
