NH educators receive 2023 Louise Tillotson fellowships

Gail McVetty, a third-grade teacher at Lancaster Elementary School, and Marc Salmin, an art teacher at White Mountains Regional High School, have been awarded 2023 Louise Tillotson teaching fellowships by the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. In its 16th year, the fellowship aims to retain good teachers in North Country public schools and recognize excellence in teaching. Awardees are selected by a committee of past fellowship recipients and receive a $10,000 stipend. The selection committee considers teachers’ commitment and passion for public education, their experience, commitment to continued professional learning, creativity and innovation, communication skills and their ability to inspire North Country educators and students. McVetty has been an educator for 14 years, the last six in Lancaster, where she grew up. Salmin has been teaching art for 16 years, the last five at White Mountains Regional High School in Whitefield.
