Klem Announces Kellogg Scholarship



Statements such as ‘hard work pays off’ can be realized in so many different ways. Today in chapel, President Klem shared with the student body one way that involves a CCC faculty member.

Just moments before our morning speaker was to preach his message, Dr. Klem invited Professor of Education Dr. Matt Kellogg to the platform. Dr. Klem proceeded to inform the student body that a scholarship program in his honor will become available beginning this year. The scholarship was established by donors in recognition of Dr. Kellogg’s impact on students through his teaching, discipleship ministry, and willingness to go the extra mile for his students. The scholarship, named the Matthew Kellogg Scholarship for Teachers, will award $2,500 to an eligible education major, with preference given to mathematics education majors. The scholarship is intended to be renewed each year until the recipient graduates from CCC.

Dr. Kellogg’s response to this announcement was “I often tell my education majors that teaching at times can be both one of the most discouraging and most encouraging jobs there is. Today was definitely an encouragement. What a humbling and exciting honor to be recognized for doing something I thoroughly enjoy. This scholarship will help ease the financial burden of future education majors, and that thrills my soul! I am constantly encouraged by the caring discipleship exhibited by my colleagues at Clearwater Christian College. God has truly established, sustained, and greatly blessed this unique place of academic training and ministry. I am very thankful to be part of such a place. “

Dr. Kellogg holds degrees from Bob Jones University (B.S. Mathematics Education), DeSales University (M.Ed. Mathematics Education), and the University of South Florida (Ph.D. Curriculum & Instruction in Mathematics Education). Originally from Rochester, New York, Matt taught middle and high school mathematics in Sellersville, PA before joining the CCC faculty in 2000. At CCC, he is the instructor for the Freshman Seminar class taken by all first-time students, teaches in our mathematics department, and instructs all education majors in required technology and mathematics methodology courses.
