University alumna granted Woodrow Wilson Ohio Teaching Fellowship
The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation recently announced Waynesburg University alumna Stacey Pavlik ('09, science/biology), as a 2013 Woodrow Wilson Ohio Teaching Fellow. She is one of only 77 Fellows chosen from approximately 2,000 applicants.
As a Woodrow Wilson Ohio Teaching Fellow, Pavlik will receive a $30,000 stipend to complete a special intensive master's program that will prepare her to teach math and/or science in a high-need Ohio school.
The Woodrow Wilson Ohio Teaching Fellowship recruits accomplished career changers and outstanding recent college graduates in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine. The 2013 Fellows are the third class of new teacher candidates to be prepared through the program since the Fellowship was launched in Ohio in 2010.
"These Fellows in Ohio, and our partner institutions, are providing national models of how to meet a critical need in education: getting strong math and science teachers into high-need schools," said Arthur Levine, president of the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation. “This year's Fellows are amazing people—deeply committed to young people and accomplished in their fields. They are going to make us all proud, and they will change countless lives."
Pavlik, a 2009 alumna from New Middleton, Ohio, completed her bachelor's degree in biology at Waynesburg University and a master's degree in biology at an Ohio university. She is an avid birdwatcher and camper and won the North American Bluebird Society award for her thesis research.
