CMS Teacher Named Council Scholar 04/02/2019


Shanna Turner-Meehan Congratulations to Shanna Turner-Meehan, International Baccalaureate coordinator at Concord Middle School on her selection as a 2018-2019 World Affairs Council Scholar. The World Affairs Council of Charlotte (WACC) is the only regional independent organization supporting international education in schools.


The Council’s initiatives provide vital assistance to teachers who are trying to cover the basics of global studies with limited resources. Council Scholars will receive a $2,500 grant from the WACC to participate in international conferences, study abroad programs, language immersion classes or other eligible international education opportunities.


Council Scholars will gain experience through these opportunities that they can bring back to enrich the classroom experience for their students.
