    HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT) – On May 16, the Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) announced that 20 educators from across the state have been chosen to participate in the Indiana Educator Fellowship for Creative Teaching, and one Perry County educator is among those.

    Officials say the fellowship is a program centered on bringing arts and creativity into the classroom. This program invites educators to participate in hands-on training sessions followed by the implementation of a full semester of arts integration activities in the classroom.

    “We are proud to be working with some of the most energetic, innovative educators across the Hoosier State through this fellowship,” said Stephanie Haines, Arts Education and Accessibility Program Manager at the IAC. “It is inspiring to meet with so many passionate Hoosiers who are ready to integrate arts and creativity into the classroom to the benefit of their students.”
