TOT works extremely hard to earn funds for scholarships for education majors that have:

  • at least a 2.5 grade point average
  • are full time students 
  • are active members of the “Teachers of Tomorrow.”

 Scholarships are awarded once a year in the spring semester.


The Teachers of Tomorrow have selected two scholarship winners with presentations made at their annual spring banquet on April 14, 2016.  Melanie Lee and Johnie Hinson, education majors, both received scholarships.

The TOT organization scholarship co-winner, Melanie Lee, is past vice president and current president.  She is a 1993 graduate of Redbank Valley Jr./Sr. High School in New Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.  While in high school Melanie served as vice president of the Library Media Club.  She plans on getting her bachelor's degree in elementary education at Lamar University.  Melanie and her husband, Justin Lee, have four children, Louis Bazan, Jr., Izabella Lee, Alexander Lee and Elizabeth Lee.  Melanie is the daughter of Ruth Spencer and James Kovach.

The co-winner Johnie Hinson, is a past historian for the TOT organization.  She graduated from Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School in 2007 where she was active in the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) organization.  Hinson plans on obtaining her bachelor's degree at Lamar University and will eventually teach kindergarten.  She is the daughter of John Hinson and Susana White.  Johnie and her finance, James Nevill, have four children.  They are Aden Mitchell, Caleb Mitchell, Jacob Mitchell and Easton Nevill.
