Thirteen Moline elementary school students have been chosen to receive an award from
the Hazel F. Van Arsdale Memorial Scholarship Fund administered through The Moline

The 13 elementary students are: Megan Pittington, Hannah Evans, Anna Riggins,
Yolanda Vargas, Symone Willey, James Sheese, Brianna Turner, Autumn
Glass, Jassaniah Leeson, Isabel Raya, Nick O’Donnell, Josephine Trenary and Justyn

The fund was started in honor and memory of Hazel F. Van Arsdale to perpetuate the
importance of music in elementary and secondary education. The fund supports two
types of annual awards. One award is given to selected elementary students, and one
scholarship is given to a high school senior. The 13 elementary students were chosen
by an individual school committee made up of teachers and music professionals through
The Moline Foundation.

Hazel Van Arsdale was a public school teacher for 36 years. She was known for her
strict, but fun, manner of bringing music into the classroom. She made sure all of her
students knew every verse of all of our patriotic hymns, and wanted them to strengthen
their music interest beyond elementary school. A fund was established and is now
administered through The Moline Foundation’s scholarship program.

Founded in 1953, The Moline Foundation is a community-based, non-profit organization
which provides grants to health, human services, education, community development,
the arts, and other charitable organizations which benefit the citizens of the Quad City
region. The Moline Foundation receives and administers charitable gifts and has a
current endowment fund of approximately $17 million. For more information contact
Executive Director Joy Boruff at (309) 736-3800 or visit The Moline Foundation Web site

Simon applauds House committee for passing math bill PDF Print E-mail

Bill authorizes state to recommend content, teaching methods for each year of high school


SPRINGFIELD – April 25, 2012. Illinois middle and high schools are one step closer to accessing statewide math curricula thanks to a bill supported by Lt. Governor Sheila Simon that passed the House Elementary and Secondary Education Committee unanimously today.


SB 3244, which passed 22-0, authorizes the Illinois State Board of Education to design curriculum models that detail content and teaching techniques for middle and high school math standards. Schools could opt to follow the state-recommended scope and sequence of study for math and math equivalent courses through a student’s final year of high school, or continue to follow local curricula.


The bill does not change high school graduation requirements in math; however the state could adjust the requirement – by mandating more time or a competency test, for example – if it finds that students who use the state curriculum perform better than those that do not. The new curriculum will be available for the 2013-14 school year, with analysis to come four years later, according to the bill.


“Students learn locally, but they compete globally,” Simon said. “Employers and colleges are telling us that too many of our students are not competing in math. This bill will provide educators across the state, in all zip codes, the tools they need to prepare their students for college and career math.”


In 2011, 58 percent of high school graduates did not meet the math college readiness benchmark, according to ACT. More than one-third of recent high school graduates who transitioned as full-time community college freshmen between 2006-08 enrolled in at least one remedial math course, according to the Illinois Community College Board. Students who enroll in remedial courses are more likely to drop out or graduate late.


Simon said the optional statewide curriculum moves away from simply requiring “seat time” to promoting use of that time wisely, with the ultimate goal of making students more employable and reducing expensive and time-consuming remedial math needs in higher education. The state curriculum could be most helpful to teachers in districts that lack curriculum directors or that rely on textbook manufacturers that claim their materials are aligned with state standards.


The bill passed out of the Senate 50-1 in March and now moves to the House for a vote.
