High school students to participate in Future Educators summer camp

More than 20 high school students who are interested in teaching as a career will participate in the Future Educators Association Summer Camp next week at WKU.

The camp, which is free for the students, is funded through a grant through the Kentucky Department of Education. WKU’s College of Education and Behavioral Sciences has hosted the camp for seven years.

Students will arrive at WKU on Monday (June 15) and will spend the week living in Bates-Runner Hall. The schedule includes leadership activities, tours of the Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science in Kentucky and the Kelly Autism Program, a field trip to the Nashville Adventure Science Center, exploration of academic programs and education careers, participation in a WKU education class and various meals on campus, including a diversity dinner. The camp concludes on June 19.

Goals of the FEA Summer Camp are to recruit and encourage students to be future teachers; increase the awareness and appreciation of the importance of diversity in today’s society and its role in our school systems; provide participants with an enjoyable and educational workshop that serves as an opportunity for them to explore the teaching profession; provide participants with leadership skills and knowledge to better be able to work as a chapter and facilitate the goals of their individual FEA groups; provide participants with information on how to be a better student as well as what it will take to be a successful college student and future teacher; and provide participants with an opportunity to experience a college education class and interact with current college, education students.

Most of the students are members of their high school’s FEA club and apply to attend the camp.
