Linda Alapi Juras Memorial Endowed Scholarship

The Linda Alapi Juras Memorial Endowed Scholarship was established in 2014 in memory of Linda Juras with a gift from the estate of her surviving husband Michael, directed to Eastern through their daughter, Lisa Girard, and her husband James P. Girard ’97. Mrs. Juras received both her bachelor’s (’71) and master’s (’76) degrees in Early Childhood Education at Eastern, and taught first grade for more than 35 years at Lyme Consolidated School, where she was named a Connecticut Teacher of the Year. Each recipient must be an Early Education or Elementary Education major or minor in good academic standing, with unmet financial need.
