Excellence in Education

What is it?

Excellence in Education provides scholarships for graduating seniors and current eighth-graders. It also honors outstanding staff who have made an impact on the lives of our students. The Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust has funded the Excellence in Education scholarship program for over twenty-five years.


The Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust has provided the Muscatine Community School District the opportunity to present twenty seniors with $3000 scholarships and ten 8th grade students with $1000 scholarships. Six awards are available for teachers, administrators and support staff.
