Amber Beaman of Wilmington was presented with a Hearst Foundation scholarship in September at the University of Delaware.
Beaman received the Hearst Scholarship through her academic and leadership efforts, as well as achieving a 3.9 GPA. Beaman is a member of the ASPIRE organization which supports access to teaching degrees for students from underrepresented groups. Through ASPIRE, Beaman was able to intern with New Directions Early Head Start as a senior at Newark High School.
The Hearst scholarship is awarded at least once each academic year to ASPIRE seniors with the highest grade point averages who are active and contributing members.
