Rita Reding Scholarship

for Owatonna Public Schools Elementary Teachers

This scholarship fund was established in memory of Rita M. Reding, a former elementary teacher, to help District 761 elementary teachers receive professional training to improve their teaching of the language arts in the following areas: writing, spelling, handwriting, and reading. 



Approximately $1,000 in scholarships, with a $500 maximum cap granted per application, will be awarded to elementary teachers each year.  The funds can be used for any training opportunity that will help a teacher in grades K-6 become a more effective teacher in the areas mentioned above.  This training may include college credits.
