North Carolina DEN STAR and Leadership Council member Kelly Hines was recently named a Kenan Fellow. The Kenan Fellows Program has awarded 49 Fellowships to North Carolina public school teachers in every region of the state.
The newest cohort of Kenan Fellows will tackle summer research projects in a variety of fields including curriculum design, renewable energy, healthcare, pharmaceuticals and agriculture. From their research, the Fellows will develop innovative classroom resources and lesson plans designed to enrich the educational experience for kindergarteners through high school seniors.
These resources are shared with other educators at the regional, state and national level via workshops, conferences and online platforms. Statewide more than 230 teachers applied for 49 Fellowships. Congratulations Kelly, job well done!
