Colleen Dolan has been selected by the P.E.O. International as a recipient of $900 from the scholarship fund called Program for Continuing Education. She is sponsored by P.E.O. Chapter GT/Delta.

As a candidate, Chapter GT found Dolan's creative classroom filled with bright and appealing colors. A tree mural on one wall was magnetic so that her students could attach objects to the mural. Toad stool chairs occupied a quiet area of the room. From the interview with Dolan it was obvious that she had a passion for teaching children with an added imaginative approach.

Currently, she teaches 11 kindergarten students as a part of the NFSIS (North Fork School of Integrated Study), a non-public school program. However, her classroom is at Paonia Elementary School.

Dolan's educational focus is to obtain an (ATL) Alternative Teaching License for K-6 Elementary Education Certification. She enrolled in the program for licensing in August 2018. Her first course was at Mesa State University. From January-May 2019 she will study to complete the certification requirements under the supervision of Jenny Hart at (BOCES) Board of Cooperative Services.

Dolan was interviewed by P.E.O. Chapter GT President Pauline Carr and Scholarship Chairman Claudia King. P.E.O. is a philanthropic educational organization offering scholarships to women. Scholarships are available at the local, state and international level. Current recipient of the local $1,000 scholarship given each May to a Delta County senior was Randy Rapke.
