Robert Foor-Hogue of Millers is one of 12 state finalists for a Presidential Award for Excellence in Science and Mathematics Teaching.
Foor-Hogue teaches science and photography at South Carroll High School. Among the projects his students have attempted this year is monitoring a stream and 300 acres of wetlands behind the school. He and the students raise money for their projects through grants and by selling pizza kits.
If Foor-Hogue is chosen as the top state winner, the award will bring $10,000 worth of equipment for his school, which is why he was willing to put in the time to fill out the 20-page application for the award.
