We are pleased to announce this years recipient of the Craig Fiedler Scholarship designated for a Univeristy if Wisconsin Oshkosh student who is going into special education. This years recipient is Catriona Ellis.

Catriona Ellis is a second-year senior at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh studying Early Childhood and Special Education. She is currently student teaching in the Oshkosh area school district and will graduate in May with honors. Her passion for working with people with disabilities began when her sister Addison was diagnosed with Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome. Seeing her sister navigate through a challenging school system, inspired Catriona to try to change that system from within. Catriona is beyond honored to have received the Craig Fiedler Scholarship and have this opportunity to come back to Circles of Life.

We are very happy to have Catriona attending the Circle of Life Conference this year and hope that this will allow her to make some connections to help advance her career in teaching. If you see her at the conference say hello.
