Washburn wins Scholarship for Summer Study in England
Congratulations to Ms. Liz Washburn, 11th and 12th grade English teacher at Union County Early College. Ms. Washburn was selected as a Council Scholar by the World Affairs Council at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Council Scholars are selected Charlotte-area educators who have shown outstanding commitment to promoting international education in their schools, education communities, and the greater Charlotte region. Scholars participate in international conferences, study abroad programs, or other eligible international education opportunities. Ms. Washburn will be traveling to Oxford, England this July to take a week long course at Oxford University entitled, “Charles Dickens, the Crime Writer.” Council Scholars bring back insights into global education and new perspectives of the broader world that will enrich their classroom experiences.
