CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Four West Virginia teachers are being recognized for their work in math and science.
President Barack Obama on Monday named 213 recipients of the Presidential Award for Excellent in Mathematics and Science Teaching. That includes Hurricane Middle School science teacher Maureen Miller, New Manchester Elementary School science teacher Nancy Holdsworth, Fairmont Senior High math teacher Sarah Snyder, and Cynthia Evarts, a math teacher at Orchard View Intermediate School in Martinsburg.
The White House says in a news release that the winners will receive a $10,000 award from the National Science Foundation to be used at their discretion.
They will be honored at a Sept. 8 ceremony in Washington, D.C.
