DeLyssa Begay , a local teacher from Rehoboth Christian High School, has been selected as an NEH Summer Scholar from a national applicant pool to attend one of 25 seminars and institutes supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Endowment is a federal agency that, each summer, supports these enrichment opportunities at colleges, universities, and cultural institutions so that teachers can study with experts in humanities disciplines.

Begay will participate in an institute entitled «Scholarship and Performance: A Combined Approach to Teaching Shakespeare’s Plays.» The 2-week program will be held at Theatre for a New Audience’s Polonsky Shakespeare Center in Brooklyn, NY and directed by Katie Miler, Education Director at Theatre for a New Audience. The 25 teachers selected to participate in the program each receive a stipend of $2,100 to cover their travel, study, and living expenses.
