Ron Raglin Teaching & Learning Scholarship
Ron Raglin joined School District U-46 in the fall of 2012 and began the job he said he, "prepared his whole life for," Chief of Equity and Social Justice. The position evolved over the years, and, at his passing in August 2019, he was the Assistant Superintendent for Educational Support Programs and Alignment.
Ron's greatest passion was equipping students with the right tools to reach for their highest dreams and goals. He focused his entire educational career on that passion by using AVID, mentoring, and support through scholarships to make sure students had everything they needed to succeed in college,
In Ron's memory, his family is expanding that passion for student success by offering the Ron Raglin Teaching and Learning Scholarship to U-46 students.
Recipients of this scholarship are AVID students who are overcomers -those who have achieved academic success against the odds.
