To honor our friend and colleague, Carmen Alexander, (July 25, 1968 – February 21, 2012) Antioch Santa Barbara has established a Memorial Scholarship Fund in Carmen’s name.
Carmen was in the process of earning her Education Specialist Mild/Moderate Credential while working at the Open Alternative School (OAS) in Santa Barbara when she became seriously ill.
Carmen’s vision included the education of all children with special emphasis on students with special needs and students learning English as a second language. Carmen is dearly missed by her family, her students and her friends and colleagues at OAS and Antioch. Scholarship donations will support micro-scholarships for teacher education candidates. Checks for any amount can be made out to the Carmen Alexander Memorial Scholarship Fund and sent to Antioch University, Santa Barbara.
