White Knoll Middle Digital Learning Coach Jessica C. White earned a prestigious scholarship from the Palmetto State Teachers Association to continue her education. White is one of only ten teachers in the state to receive the 2022 Dr. Elizabeth Gressette Professional Development Scholarship.

To apply for the scholarship, applicants must be a PSTA member for at least three years and currently enrolled in a higher education program. PSTA, the largest professional education association for teachers in South Carolina, provides benefits to members throughout their careers.
