Southeastern student Tabitha McDowell of the Department of Teaching and Learning was awarded a scholarship at the Louisiana Early Childhood Education Association Annual Conference held in Alexandria recently.

McDowell’s award is the result of hard work in academics and her service to Louisiana’s young children and their families, as evidenced by her leadership and participation in Southeastern’s campus organization titled Student-led Louisiana Early Childhood Association (SLAECA).

Through SLAECA, McDowell took a leadership role in the Child Abuse Prevention Awareness campaign, the Once Upon a Time in the Park Family Literacy Festival, and a campus presentation titled “The Next Best Thing to Being There,” where she and her peers recapped their learning experiences at the state conference.
