GHS teacher selected as Summer Scholar

(May 30, 2019)

Ricardo A. Valenzuela, a local teacher from Goddard High School, has been selected as a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Scholar from a national applicant pool to attend one of 20 seminars and institutes supported by the NEH.

NEH is a federal agency that, each summer, supports enrichment opportunities at colleges, universities and cultural institutions, so that teachers can study with experts in humanities disciplines.

Valenzuela will participate in a Summer Institute named ‘Tales from the Chihuahuan Desert: Borderlands Narratives about Identity and Binationalism.’ Including Valenzuela, the 25 teachers selected to participate in the program each receive a stipend of $2,100 to cover their travel, study and living expenses.
