Four East Columbia high school teachers were honored at ceremonies Friday at the University of Maryland at Baltimore.

Oakland Mills' William Craig, Barbara Jewett and Robert Siskind and Hammond's Linda Kreitlow have been selected to participate in the Martin Marietta Graduate Fellows Program this summer.

The program places mathematics and science fellows in research laboratories working with mentor scientists with the goal of enhancing these subjects in Maryland schools and building "bridges" between classrooms and laboratories.

Mr. Craig, chairman of Oakland Mills mathematics department, will intern at Central Maryland Research & Education Center on Folly Quarter Road. Ms. Jewett, who heads the school's science department, will be working at the Center for Agricultural Biotechnology at the University of Maryland's College Park campus.

Mr. Siskind, who also teaches science at Oakland Mills, will intern at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt.

Ms. Kreitlow will spend her internship at Johns Hopkins University's Applied Physics Laboratory near Columbia.

All of the teachers are graduates of the Governor's Academy for Mathematics, Science and Technology at Towson State University, which is a requisite for applying for the fellowship.
