Two University of North Georgia (UNG) graduates were among the 63 in the state selected last month as Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellows for 2017.

Jami Brownlee and Jonathan Long were the new fellows introduced at an event June 29 with Gov. Nathan Deal. Brownlee earned her bachelor’s degree in 2016. Long earned his bachelor’s degree in 2017.

The highly competitive program recruits recent graduates and career changers with strong backgrounds in science, technology, engineering, and math — the STEM fields — and prepares them to teach in high-need secondary schools.

Each fellow receives $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 Georgia schools that most need strong STEM teachers. Throughout the three-year commitment, fellows receive ongoing support and mentoring.

Through the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship program, the Woodrow Wilson Foundation will contribute to the University System of Georgia’s initiative to produce 20,000 new teachers by 2020.
