The Canton Professional Educators' Association dares students and members to dream big, and never stop. The CPEA not only offers education-based scholarships to make those dreams a reality, but awards its members for service and leadership achievements, as well. The association grants give advisors the opportunity to develop their skills professionally, while student scholarships target specific fields of study, allowing members to study alongside those with similar interests. This is just one of the many ways the CPEA enables members to realize their potential and never failing commitment to the advancement of Academics, Leadership and Service.
