LBHS Student Awarded Scholarship for Teaching

Long Beach High School senior Hannah Bloom was one of 12 students throughout New York State to be awarded The New York State PTA Jenkins Memorial Scholarship for Teacher Education.

Hannah is excited to attend Binghamton University in the Fall and plans to become a high school chemistry teacher. She was inspired to become a teacher because both of her parents are teachers, but it was her Honors and AP Chemistry Teacher, Julie Hall, who influenced her decision to want to become a chemistry teacher. “Ms. Hall made two years of chemistry class so much fun and interesting,” said Hannah. “She expected her students to put their best in everything while being very encouraging at the same time.”

Among the many contributions Hannah makes to Long Beach High School, she has been class president since tenth grade and captain of the color guard team her junior and senior years. In addition to teaching chemistry, she hopes one day to combine her love of dance and desire to teach to become a dance teacher as well. “It is truly remarkable how Hannah manages to excel academically while engaging in numerous extracurricular activities,” said School Counselor Amy Leder.

The Jenkins Memorial Scholarship was inaugurated in October 1946 as a special Golden Anniversary Project. In 1947 the fund was established as a permanent project as a living memorial to the young people who lost their lives in military service during WWII and was named for one of them, Clifford N. Jenkins Jr., son of Margaret Jenkins, New York State PTA President 1944-1947, and National PTA President 1961- 1964. The purpose of the project is to assist outstanding students in preparing for the teaching profession.

Congratulations Hannah!
