Scholarship Honors Hilda Wright Goodling
The Goodling family created the scholarship in memory of Hilda Wright Goodling whose passion was teaching children the joy of reading, a passion that carried through a 50-year career in public elementary education. She began her teaching career in 1955 with a nine-year stint in the Dallastown Area School District, followed by 35 years with the York Suburban School District. After her retirement in 1999 in Pennsylvania, she continued her teaching career for another five years – two years in Baltimore City School system and three years in the Baltimore County School system. The scholarship check was presented during a recent dinner at Penn State York.
