Beulaville, NC (WNCT) 9 On Your Side is Duplin County honoring our STEM Teacher of the Month, Corey Keffer.
He’s the Technology Engineering and Design teacher at East Duplin High School, a place that he holds dear to his heart. He’s a graduate of the high school and returned to teach there only three weeks after he graduated from N.C. State University.
Now, with fourteen years of teaching under his belt Keffer is quite accomplished. He received international recognition as a Program of Excellence by the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association.
Keffer will use his stem teacher of the month award to purchase prototype materials needed to help build models in the classroom.
