Meharrian Named Among 2013 Woodrow Wilson Ohio Teaching Fellows
On Tuesday, May 28, the Ohio Board of Regents, the Ohio Department of Education, and the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation jointly named Meharry's Marjelo Mines, Ph.D. '09 (pharmacology) among its 2013 Woodrow Wilson Ohio Teaching Fellows—seventy-seven career changers and recent college graduates in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine—the STEMM fields. Dr. Mines will receive a $30,000 stipend to complete a special intensive master's program at John Carroll University to prepare him to teach math and/or science in a high-need Ohio school.
The 2013 fellows are the third class of new teacher candidates to be prepared through the program since the Ohio fellowship was launched in 2010. Institutions at which the fellows enroll include John Carroll University, The Ohio State University, Ohio University, the University of Akron, the University of Cincinnati, the University of Dayton, and the University of Toledo. These institutions have redesigned training to give teacher candidates a full year of preparation in local classrooms, as well as specific teaching approaches for the STEMM fields.
