International Virtual Learning Academy (IVLA), an online K-12 accredited private school, announced a $1,000 college scholarship in 2018 for students who have been accepted to an accredited U.S. college for the Fall of 2019. This scholarship was available to any college-bound student, whether they attended IVLA or not.
To be considered for this scholarship award, students were required to submit no more than 500 words about how technology advanced their education. After reviewing hundreds of entries, a winner has been selected. Caitlyn Jodon, a 2019 graduate of Desert Vista High School in Phoenix, Arizona, was selected by the IVLA board of directors as the 2019 scholarship winner. You can read Caitlyn’s winning essay, and learn more about the 2020 scholarship, on the IVLA website.
Caitlyn will be attending the University of Arizona to study to become a speech-language pathologist.

She was also a teacher’s assistant for a special education classroom, where she assisted on a daily basis. During her high school career, Caitlyn was involved in many extra-curricular activities including the Key Club, National Honor Society, Spanish Honor Society, and her church youth group.
