Whitmer receives Lanoy Education Scholarship from ECU's Department of Education
Michael Whitmer, right of Shawnee, received the Leon and Pauline Lanoy Centennial Graduate Education Endowment Scholarship during the East Central University Department of Education's 2019 Spring Awards Luncheon. Pictured with Whitmer is Dr. Phyllis Isaacs, associate professor of education. The Lanoy Scholarship is awarded to an education student working on his/her master's degree. The Lanoys were educators for over 40 years, teaching in both Oklahoma and Wyoming. Pauline taught all subjects in grades 1-12 and Leon was a teacher, principal and superintendent during his career in education. Both Leon and Pauline were inducted into the ECU Educators' Hall of Fame in 2009 and were recognized as ECU's Distinguished Philanthropists in 2008. They established this scholarship to assist master's degree students because of their strong belief in the value of higher education and the teaching profession.
