Reta Renée Schiber was a recently retired and beloved AP English teacher in Collinsville, Illinios. The Renée Schiber AP English Scholarship and fund were initiated by her former colleagues of the Collinsville High School (CHS) English department, immediately following her untimely death on July 31, 2016. With the active support of Renée’s family, we hope to honor and cultivate Renée’s legacy of excellence, dedication, compassion, and conviction. The annual scholarship will be awarded through an essay competition. AP English students from CHS will research topics that were dear to Renée. The essays will be judged by local writers, professors, CHS teachers, and students.
