ORAU in the News
Elaina Fields, a third-grade teacher at Claxton Elementary School in Anderson County, was named runnerup in Oak Ridge Associated Universities' Extreme Classroom Makeover and received a check for $5,000 on Thursday, March 24. She also received an additional $2,500 as winner of the competition’s Viewers’ Choice Award for her video submission.
When a Sevier County Schools teacher walked into her school's gym on Tuesday, she thought it was for a routine meeting. Instead, she and several educators gathered to hand her $25,000.
She was the winner of the Oak Ridge Associated Universities' "Extreme Classroom Makeover" program. Through the program, the ORAU selects teachers who teach third-grade through tenth-grade math or science, within a 50-mile radius of Oak Ridge, to get a big surprise.
