Seneca High School’s Tyson Gentry and Maggie Hart Named SC Teaching Fellows

posted Apr 1, 2020, 11:11 AM by Nickie Powell

SHS Teaching Fellows
Rock Hill, SC – Tyson Gentry and Maggie Hart, seniors at Seneca High School have been awarded the prestigious South Carolina Teaching Fellowship. 

When asked about receiving the honor, Tyson said “I’m very honored and blessed to be named a Teaching Fellow! I’m excited to attend Anderson University where I plan to study Art Education and become K-12 certified. In the future I hope to also earn my Masters degree or Doctorate in education to go on to be a visual arts professor at a college.”

Maggie said, “I am so excited to take advantage of this opportunity. I can’t wait to grow as a future educator through this program and surround myself with people who share this passion of mine.” 

Tyson will join the freshman cohort at Anderson University and Maggie will join the freshman cohort at the College of Charleston this fall where they will be offered numerous professional development opportunities and be involved with communities and businesses through various service projects and partnerships with local schools.

The state’s Teaching Fellows Program, operated by the Center for Educator Recruitment, Retention, and Advancement (CERRA), was established in 1999 by the SC General Assembly. The mission of the program is to recruit talented high school seniors into the teaching profession and help them develop leadership qualities. Each year, the program provides Fellowships for up to 215 high school seniors who have exhibited high academic achievement, a history of service to their school and community, and a desire to teach in South Carolina.

Applicants for the program undergo a rigorous selection process that includes an online application, an interview and presentation in front of a team of three educators, and a scored response.

Following the rigorous selection process, applicants who are awarded a Fellowship receive up to $24,000 in yearly scholar­ships (up to $6000 a year for four years) to attend a Teaching Fellows Institution in South Carolina. Each Fellow agrees to teach in South Carolina one year for every year he or she receives the Fellowship.
