Mead Alumni Awarded Prestigious Harry S. Truman Scholarship
Mead Alumni Danny Loehr '05 hs been elected as a Truman Scholar.
The Harry S. Truman Scholarship is a highly competitive and prestigious federal scholarship granted to U.S. college juniors who have demonstrated leadership potential and a commitment to public service. The $30,000 scholarship is toward a graduate education. According to the Washington Post, the Truman Scholarship's "sole aim is to pick out people with potential to become leaders—then provide support to help them realize their aspirations." The scholarship was created by Congress in 1975 as a living memorial to the 33rd president of the United States. Instead of a statue, the Truman Scholarship is the official federal memorial to its namesake president.
Danny's father, Mark Loehr, Mead School Foundation co-founder, writes that The Mead School was a critical component "of Danny's application. Critical thinking, emotional intelligence, writing skills..." were all at "the core of his application." Dan's mother, Deb Brower, former Mead School Board Member, Book Fair and New Building co-chair, writes that it makes her think of Mead teachers such as "Joy teaching him how to speak (publicly), struggling ... to annunciate with a mouth full of braces, and Judy, helping him to learn about his body and the tool of expression that it is and Rick about playing fair and ... (all the) teachers along the way ... that create(d) the space for him to be himself... to express his ideas... and to be taken seriously." She refers to the Mead experience as "waves and waves of knowledgeable, research based, heart warmth laced, mindfully delivered education at it's very best."
