Willowbrook alumna Sydney Keehner (class of 2019) was recently inducted into the 2019 class of Golden Apple Scholars of Illinois.

Golden Apple, a leading Illinois nonprofit committed to preparing, supporting and mentoring aspiring teachers, recently announced the induction of the 2019 Scholars. These 263 dynamic young people (the program’s largest cohort to date) have chosen to dedicate themselves to a career teaching students in challenging schools after their graduation from college. The Scholars program is an important part of the solution to the Illinois teacher shortage crisis. For the fifth consecutive year, Golden Apple has inducted more than 200 Scholars annually.

The program provides unique preparation to pre-service teachers to enable their success in the most challenging school environments, where resilient teachers are needed the most. While pursuing their degree in teaching, Scholars participate in Scholar Institutes each summer, during which they teach in classrooms working directly with students, reflect on their teaching practice and receive instruction and mentorship from award-winning Golden Apple teachers and expert partner organizations.
