Congratulations to Carmelo Torres ’10, visual arts, who is the recipient of a Woodrow Wilson-Rockefeller Brothers Fund Fellowship for Aspiring Teachers of Color. The fund seeks to help recruit, support and retain individuals of color as public school teachers by providing them with support, including a $30,000 stipend toward the cost of a master’s degree.
Torres will enroll in a master’s program in Art Education in fall 2011 and teach art in high-needs urban schools. A former marine and graphic artist, Torres is passionate about teaching art to young people and believes firmly in the transformative value of creative expression.
