Eric Jessup of Mount Airy has been selected for the Supreme Court Summer Institute to be held in June, according to the Mount Airy News.
Jessup was one of 60 teachers chosen after a “highly competitive” application process, according to officials of the program.
The teacher plans to learn about the judicial branch of the government through his upcoming participation in the program.
He said he will apply the program's insights about the federal government’s legislative functions into his own classroom teachings.
