February 11, 2014 - University of Rhode Island student Eric Boynton has been named a Nancy
Larson Foundation scholar and awarded a $1,000 scholarship in recognition of his outstanding
academic record and community service.

The Nancy Larson Foundation supports students majoring in elementary education across the
country by awarding scholarships to deserving students each year.

Boynton, of Warwick, is one out of six recipients selected from the hundreds of applicants
received by the Foundation.

Boynton is a senior studying elementary education. Boynton ’s inspiration to become a teacher


stems from his passion volunteering at the Special Olympics. Boynton is working part time as a
pass worker for the Groden Center, where he is paired with a special young boy with whom he
spends time and helps with schoolwork.

“I hope that what I am accomplishing with my students in the classroom is making a difference
in their lives,” said Boynton. “Great teachers not only love to teach but also love to share that joy
with their students.”

“Boynton is the type of aspiring teacher that we want to nurture and support. Our classrooms
need intelligent, energetic, young educators that can continue to provide the best possible
learning environment for elementary students,” said Nancy Larson, who established the
Foundation in 2006.

Larson is the author of two nationally successful curriculum programs: Nancy Larson Science K-
4 and Saxon Math K-4. Juniors, seniors and graduate students who have declared an elementary
education major are invited to submit a personal narrative about qualities that will make them
excellent teachers. Applicants are also asked to include community service activities and
personal experiences they have had working with children. Larson, a former teacher and
curriculum director, has dedicated her life to advancing elementary education.

Royse City High School graduate and current Texas A&M University-Commerce student Chantell Oliver
has been named a Nancy Larson Foundation scholar and awarded a $1000 scholarship in recognition of
her outstanding academic record and community service.

The Nancy Larson Foundation proudly supports students majoring in elementary education across the
country by awarding scholarships to deserving students each year.

Oliver is one out of six recipients selected from the hundreds of applicants received by the Foundation.

Oliver is a junior studying interdisciplinary studies. Oliver is currently working as a substitute teacher in
the Royse City ISD district where she is qualified to sub pre-kindergarten through middle school. Oliver
received her CNA (certified nurse’s aide) license in 2005 and spent two years working at a nursing home.

“I can’t wait to get into the school and make a difference in a child’s life,” Oliver said.

“Chantell is the type of aspiring teacher that we want to nurture and support. Our classrooms need
intelligent, energetic, young educators that can continue to provide the best possible learning
environment for elementary students,” said Nancy Larson, who established the foundation in 2006.

Juniors, seniors and graduate students who have declared an elementary education major are invited to
submit a personal narrative about qualities that will make them excellent teachers.

Applicants are also asked to include community service activities and personal experiences they have
had working with children.

Larson, a former teacher and curriculum director, has dedicated her life to advancing elementary
education. Her original Saxon Math K-4 program was developed after teachers expressed their need for
a classroom-tested math program that would prepare children for advanced math classes.

In recent years, Larson has used the same approach to develop Nancy Larson Science for kindergarten
through fourth-grade students. The program was written to provide in-depth science content in an easy-
to-teach format.
