Gladys Roddenberry Graduate Fellowship for Teaching Excellence Recipients

Gilchrist Berg, founder and president of a Jacksonville investment company, named five UNF graduate scholarships to honor Gladys Roddenberry, his 6th grade teacher. He also established The Gladys Prior Awards for Career Teaching Excellence, among the largest monetary awards for teachers in the nation, to honor his 4th grade teacher at Ortega Elementary School, Gladys Prior.


"Teachers are one of our most important assets. We simply don't do enough to remind ourselves of their great influence on us every day of our life. Maybe in some small way, these awards will cause others to reflect on the great contributions teachers have made to their lives and the life of their families."  Gilchrist Berg
