Chemistry Alumnus Awarded Fellowship

July 09, 2021

Baxter Krug, who graduated from Angelo State University in 2020 with a B.S. in Chemistry, was selected by the WW Foundation as a WW Pennsylvania Teaching Fellow.

The highly competitive program recruits both recent graduates and career changers with strong backgrounds in science, technology, engineering, and math and prepares them specifically to teach in high-need secondary schools.

Each Fellow receives $32,000 to complete a specially designed, cutting-edge master’s degree program based on a yearlong classroom experience. In return, Fellows commit to teach for three years in the high-need Pennsylvania schools. Throughout the three-year commitment as a teacher of record at a public school, Fellows receive ongoing support and mentoring.
