Melinda Harris, a Preston Junior High history teacher, was awarded a $24,000 fellowship from the James Madison Fellowship foundation to further her education.
“I have wanted to apply or this for 10 years, but never had the courage until this year,” Harris said.
Harris will work on a Masters Degree specializing in American history and government from George Washington University. She was one of 56 fellows selected from 50 states, the District of Colombia, Puerto Rico and the nation’s islands and trust territories.
Harrison plans to do six semesters at George Washington University and the rest at Ashland University in Ohio.
Her long-term goal is to teach history at the high school level until she retires, then teach at a junior college.
