NORTH FORSYTH — As one Forsyth County teacher prepares to move onto a bigger role, another will step in to fill a spot on the Georgia Science Teachers Association board.

North Forsyth High School teacher Donna Governor, a board member since 2010, will serve as the organization’s president during her final term. From there, she will become the association’s director in fall 2015.

“I am excited to be able to serve the Georgia Science Teachers Association in my new position as president, and the opportunity to work towards improving science education in the state of Georgia in this capacity,” Governor said.

But before she assumes her new role, Governor will help acclimate Coal Mountain Elementary teacher Denise Webb, who has been tapped to serve a two-year term on the panel.

“Denise brings her enthusiasm for science and dedication to science education to the board in the capacity of elementary representative,” Governor said.

“Her expertise, along with the other board members, will help the organization provide leadership and professional development opportunities to science teachers throughout Georgia, as well as recognize excellence and achievements in science education by both teachers and students.”

The nonprofit association is made up of science teachers who work together to support excellence in the field for all students in Georgia. Other members include teachers from Brenau and Kennesaw State universities and several elementary, middle and high schools from across the area.
