Teacher Cadets and Teaching Fellows
Monday - July 27, 2009
The Center for Educator Recruitment, Retention and Advancement (CERRA) housed at Winthrop University offers a number of programs designed to support and enhance the education profession in the state. The highly successful Teacher Cadet program, in its over twenty years of existence, has been emulated throughout the country and helps supply our state with quality teachers. Since 1999 the Teaching Fellows program has provided scholarship opportunities to Palmetto State students – up to $6,000.00 per year for four years to those who qualify and are willing to spend a year in the state’s public schools for each year they received financial assistance. Program Directors Tria Grant (Cadets) and Brett Vaughn (Fellows) discuss their programs, and CERRA Public Information Coordinator Mychal Frost reflects on the agency’s Teacher Expo held in Columbia in early June.
