Two recent marketing graduates have been selected from more than 13,300 applicants nationwide to participate in the Teach For America program. Carrie Darrah ’04 will teach in North Carolina, while Lindsay Waller ’04 will teach in Houston.
Teach For America is an education program that places recently graduated students from all majors and disciplines in low-income rural and urban communities across the country in an effort to eliminate educational inequality. The graduates, though not education majors, pledge to spend two years teaching in one of 22 such communities across the United States. Program directors say during those two years, the Aggies will work to help ensure that students growing up in low-income districts are afforded the educational opportunities they deserve.
