SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NC (WECT) – South Brunswick High School career and technical education teacher, Beke Lindsay has been selected as a 2013-14 Kenan Fellow. Lindsay is the first Kenan Fellow named from Brunswick County.
Lindsay competed against 230 other candidates to earn the fellowship. She will join an elite group of 48 educators selected from systems throughout North Carolina.
During the summer, Lindsay will work on a research project with her mentor, Dan Gwaltney of the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.
The project, entitled Leading Educators to Homebase, will allow Lindsay to explore innovative ways of preparing students for college and careers. From their research, Fellows will develop lesson plans and resources to be shared with other educators at the regional, state, and national levels.
The Kenan Fellows Program is an initiative of the Kenan Institute for Engineering, Technology & Science at North Carolina State University.
According to Susan K. Parry, Acting Director of the Kenan Fellows Program, "Through this in-depth experience which includes accomplished peers from across the state, hands-on research, and 10 days of professional development, we expect Fellows to become leaders and serve as ambassadors for excellence in education in North Carolina."
