GOV. MILLER TO HONOR THREE TEACHERS IN AT&T SUMMER PROGRAM

 ATLANTA, July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Gov. Zell Miller tomorrow will recognize three Georgia teachers chosen to participate as "Governors' Fellows" in the first annual AT&T Teachers & Technology Institute.
 The three science and math teachers -- Eunice Arnold from Benjamin E. Mays High School in Atlanta, Susan Swanson from Rossville Middle School in Rossville, and Richard Wilson from Colquitt County Junior High School in Moultrie -- will meet the governor for a noon luncheon at the mansion. The three teachers will then travel to New Jersey and join 45 teachers from other states in an intensive, two-week program of workshops led by AT&T experts in quality and education, including scientists and engineers from AT&T Bell Laboratories.
 The program gets underway Sunday, July 18. The Teachers & Technology Institute is based in Somerset, N.J., although the program includes numerous visits to AT&T laboratories, manufacturing locations and other facilities, to meet and discuss issues with scientists, engineers, researchers and management experts.
 The Teachers & Technology Institute is entirely funded by AT&T. Its purpose is to offer middle and high school teachers the opportunity and challenge to work on their own visions of the future. To be chosen a Governors' Fellow, a teacher must have demonstrated a visionary approach to math and science teaching and articulated that vision in his or her application.
 Over the next three years, middle and high school teachers in all 50 states and the District of Columbia will vie for the opportunity to participate in the new educational program. In all, 153 winning teachers will attend intensive two-week workshops during the course of the program, starting with the 48 teachers this summer.
 The AT&T Teachers & Technology Institute is among a broad range of educational programs sponsored by AT&T and the AT&T Foundation, the company's philanthropic unit. AT&T programs support every educational level, from elementary, middle and high school, to college undergraduate and graduate.
