Coker-Wimberly's Sheronica Sharp named Kenan Fellow

The Kenan Fellows Program, established in 2000 as a K–12 education initiative of the Kenan Institute for Engineering, Technology & Science at North Carolina State University, addresses the critical need for high-quality professional development for educators, and is the largest (science, technology, engineering and math) STEM-focused teacher fellowship in North Carolina. 


While remaining in the classroom, Kenan Fellows use knowledge and tools gained during the year-long fellowship to develop innovative educational resources and programs for their schools, districts and the boarder educational community.  A summer internship of at least three weeks is the centerpiece of the program and is supported by 80 hours of professional development that focuses on building leadership capacity; and instructional strategies for integrating data literacy, digital learning, and project-based learning. 


Sharp is supported by the Kenan Institute for Engineering, Technology & Science Board of Trustees and Kenan Fellows Program Board of Advisors and will partner with David Catt, Batt Masterson, and Connie Hunt of Keihin Carolina System Technology, LLC for a project entitled Phail Wynn Kenan Fellowship:  STEM Connections.
