Born out of Gratitude: Students give the Scholarship its start.

                                                                                                                                                                                                   The idea of the scholarship was born from the desire of ConcordAcademy Alumni with Prof. & Mrs. Bartlingia Academy alumni to express their gratitude for the impact Dr. Bartling’s teaching and influence have had on their lives.  With the establishment and continued growth  of The Fred  and  Ruth Bartling Scholarship, we can ensure Dr. Bartling’s heart for history, passion for people and life of learning  will be honored through financially assisting History or Social Studies licensure students who have demonstrated commitment to social leadership and have financial need.
