PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Rhode Island College student Brian Flamand of West Greenwich, R.I., has been awarded a $1,000 R.I. Council on Economic Education Scholarship. This scholarship is given annually to an undergraduate student majoring in secondary education/social studies or secondary education/history who has demonstrated outstanding promise as a secondary school economics teacher. Typically in high schools, economics is taught in the social studies or history departments. Flamand’s focus is social studies.

Flamand is also vice president of the RIC Educators of Social Studies Club. He was recently inducted into Kappa Delta Pi, an international honor society in education that encourages high personal, professional and intellectual standards and recognizes outstanding contributions to education.
