Maynard, Castellanos named 2021 Davis Scholars

By AccessWDUN staff

Educators from Johnson High School and Cherokee Bluff Middle School have been named the 2021 Davis Scholars for the Hall County School District. 

Katie Maynard, who teaches Geometry at Johnson High School, is pursuing a Master’s Degree in Math Education at Georgia State University. Adolfo Castellanos, a 7th Grade Language Arts teacher at Cherokee Bluff Middle School, is pursuing a Specialist Degree in Curriculum and Instruction through Piedmont University. Both educators will receive $500 scholarship awards toward the pursuit of their advanced degrees. 

Both of these outstanding teachers have been awarded a $500 scholarship towards the pursuit of an advanced degree.

The Hall County School District administers the C.W. Davis Scholarship in honor of the distinguished life and career of former Hall County School District Superintendent C.W. Davis. Davis attended Vanderbilt University and the University of Georgia and was named principal of the original Flowery Branch High School in 1953. In 1960, he founded the Lanierland Basketball Tournament, which continues to this day. After serving as principal of South Hall High School, he became superintendent of Hall County Schools from 1977 through 1983. C.W. Davis Middle School was named in his honor in 1999. The C.W. Davis Scholarship has been established in his honor to assist current Hall County teachers as they pursue advanced degrees and a life-long career in education.

To be eligible for the Davis Scholar designation, applicants must be Hall County teachers who have completed between three and seven years of teaching. Teachers also must plan to remain in an education-related field and must be accepted into or already be enrolled in an education graduate degree program at Brenau University, Georgia State University, Piedmont College, the University of Georgia or the University of North Georgia
