The NABT Board of Directors established a scholarship program in September 2018, to honor the memory of Jennifer Pfannerstill. Jen loved to "create novel opportunities for faculty from 4-year colleges, 2-year colleges, and high schools to learn from one another and innovate with one another." In the spirit of that effort, NABT has created the newly established Jennifer Pfannerstill Legacy Fund (aka the "Pfanny Pfund") to provide a travel scholarship for first-time participants to attend the NABT Conference.
Sponsored by private contributions and the NABT community, the Jennifer Pfannerstill Travel Award will include registration to the NABT Conference, hotel accommodations for the duration of the conference, travel reimbursement, and one-year of complimentary membership to NABT.
Jen was a consummate professional, student-learning-focused biology teacher, and a beloved colleague who pursued her own professional development and was genuinely interested in sharing those opportunities with others. We are honored to play a small part in continuing that legacy.
