1980's Milestones: Alumni Achievements

Brandon Hewitt, M.EG. 1982, has been selected to be among the first 36 Woodrow Wilson Georgia Teaching Fellows through the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation. Hewitt will receive $30,000 to complete a specially designed, cutting-edge master’s degree program, based on a yearlong classroom experience. In return, Fellows commit to teach for three years in the urban and rural New Jersey schools that most need strong STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) teachers.
