Center Grove Teacher Selected for First Woodrow Wilson MBA Fellows in Education Leadership Program
Center Grove Middle School North 6th grade resource teacher Allison Chance is one of 13 educators chosen for the first class of the Woodrow Wilson MBA Fellows in Education Leadership Program. Governor Pence made the announcement at the Statehouse Monday afternoon.
The selected fellows are emerging leaders nominated by their school districts or charter schools. The fellows will take part in aninterdisciplinary program between the School of Business and the School of Education that combines the best practices in business and education leadership within an educational context.
“This is a wonderful opportunity,” said Chance. “I am looking forward to learning more about how the business component works together with education. I anticipate gaining valuable experience from Center Grove administrators while working on a variety of projects. Through an international travel experience, I will also have the opportunity to see how another country’s educational system differs from ours.”
“We are so proud of Allison and are excited for her to take part in this new program,” said Superintendent Rich Arkanoff. “She is a talented teacher and this will certainly bring new opportunities for her.”
The fellows receive awards to fully fund their participation in the 13-month, cohort-based graduate program, including an international travel experience. Upon graduation, fellows will be eligible for principal licensure and prepared for placement in their district as an assistant principal, principal, or central office administrator.
