2009 SSP Fellows

Inaugural SSP Fellows Class Inspires Achievement

The inaugural class of SSP Fellows had a great first year. These science teachers received funds and training to help them enable under-resourced students to perform high-quality independent scientific research. Highlights include:

  • One of Susan Vincent’s students received a full scholarship to Dartmouth College; she will be the first person in her family to go to college.
  • Two of Constance Wyrick’s students placed at the National Future Farmers of American Agriscience Fair, which was the first time a student from her school took a category 1st at this national competition.
  • Orvilla Caprice Coleman’s students received a partial scholarship to attend Botball (an educational robotics program). SSP funds enabled the team to attend.

Most of the 126 people on the platform escaped, but 11 people died, and others were injured.
