Anson County science teacher wins fellowship and will attend NCCAT

Congratulations to Justin Jones and we look forward to seeing him and others from the Kenan Fellows Program later this month!

From The Anson Record

ANSONVILLE — Justin Jones helps his class blow up pumpkins, create fire tornadoes and burn butane bubbles — all in the name of science. This summer, Jones will intern with Pee Dee Electric to learn about aspects of working in electricity to take what he learns back to the classroom.

Jones, a fourth- and fifth-grade science teacher at Ansonville Elementary School, was one of more than 130 applicants to apply for the fellowship. Only 41 teachers in the state were selected, and Jones became the first teacher from Anson County to receive a Kenan Fellowship since the program began in 2000, according to Amneris Solano, communications manager for the Kenan Fellows Program.
