This scholarship was established by Dr. George Schmidt in memory of his wife, Dr. Kimberly Bright, an outstanding educator and administrator who was a leader in the field of special education in Central Pennsylvania for three decades. As a tireless advocate for people of all ages who have special needs, Dr. Bright distinguished herself as a classroom teacher, as a director of special education, as an associate professor of special education, as a published author, as a leader in the Council for Exceptional Children, and as a highly regarded speaker at local, state, and national academic conferences. With this scholarship, her family, friends, and colleagues hope to inspire the next generation of teachers to follow in her footsteps and seek ways to support and strengthen the field of special education.
