For some students, going to college is an accepted rite of passage. For Amber Beaman, ETE ‘13, growing up in Eastside, Wilmington, it was a dream to become a first generation college student. Fortunately, as a student at Newark High School, she learned of ASPIRE, an organization that supports access to teaching degrees for students from underrepresented groups.  

Beaman’s experiences with ASPIRE helped convince her to become an Elementary Teacher Education major in UD’s College of Education and Human Development. She enrolled in the fall of 2010 and quickly immersed herself in its academic opportunities. 

In September 2012, Beaman was presented with a Hearst Foundation scholarship, recognizing her exceptional academic and leadership efforts.
