North Hills Middle School history teacher Larry Dorenkamp has received a fellowship valued at $24,000 from the James Madison Fellowship Foundation to help pay for graduate studies.

A middle school teacher in the North Hills School District has received a $24,000 fellowship to help pay for his master’s degree, district officials announced.

Larry Dorenkamp received the James Madison Fellowship, which “recognizes promising and distinguished teachers while supporting further study of American history.”

Fellows were selected from each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the nation’s island and trust territories this year.

The fellowships were awarded this year to 53 people from each state as well as the District of Colombia, Puerto Rico and United States island and trust territories.

Dorenkamp and North Hills middle school teacher Alexander Martinez also were awarded a summer fellowship from the Ashbrook Center at Ashland University in Ohio.

The teachers will participate in a tuition free, week-long graduate U.S. government and history course later this summer as part of the fellowship.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
