Lugoff-Elgin High School (L-EHS) science teacher Holly Sullivan will be honored with the 2011 Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) from July 27-29 in Washington, D.C. Sullivan, along with 96 other teachers from across the county, will each receive a $10,000 award, to be used at their discretion; a certificate signed by the president; and a trip for two to participate in various educational and celebratory events later this month. Awardees will get to meet with National Science Foundation (NSF) staff members and are scheduled to meet with the Obama Administration and various policy makers at the Willard Hotel. As of Thursday, a “possible” meeting with members of Congress on Capitol Hill, tour of the White House and picture with President Barack Obama have not been confirmed, according to a staff member from the PAEMST recognition committee.
