The Saul Wolpert Memorial Scholarship

Saul Wolpert was born in 1905 in Brooklyn, New York and died in 1994 in Atlanta. He was the eighth child (out of eight children) of Leopold and Bella Wolpert who immigrated to this country in 1888 from Latvia. He was very intelligent and quite well educated having received a bachelors and a masters degree in an era when graduation from high school was considered a significant accomplishment.

He was employed by the New York City public schools first as a secondary school teacher of commercial education, then as a department chairperson, and finally as an assistant principal. He was an excellent teacher and administrator and left a legacy of major accomplishments when he retired in 1970, including a textbook, Bookkeeping and Accounting, Principles and Practice, published by Prentice Hall, which was used extensively in the public schools of New York City. He had three sons, one an attorney in New York City, another a research chemist in New Jersey, and one an educator residing in Georgia. This educator son, Edward M. Wolpert, was Dean of the GC School of Education from 1983-1996 and was a Professor in Foundations and Secondary Education from 1996-2000. Saul Wolpert's extended family includes seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

The scholarship fund was established by his family and friends upon his death to honor him. The specification of a recipient who would be enrolled in the Master of Arts in Teaching program for students who would be preparing to teach in secondary schools was made deliberately since it was in that venue that he spent his career in education.

Required for Eligibility:

*Status: graduate students enrolled in the Masters of Arts in Teaching-Secondary Education program

*Cumulative GPA of at least 3.0

*Full-time enrollment for both semesters of the academic year
