TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Gov. Chris Christie has introduced the latest class of Woodrow Wilson teaching fellows who will go on to serve as educators in science, technology, engineering and math.

The Republican governor announced the 62-person group at a statehouse event Wednesday. He thanked them for joining an educational “calling in life.”

The Wilson fellowship recruits recent college graduates and career changers with a background in the so-called STEM fields to teach in high-need high schools.

Fellows receive $30,000 to finish a master’s degree based on classroom experience and for committing to teach for three years in urban or rural New Jersey schools.

The program dates back to 2014. It’s offered at five universities and across 20 school districts in the state.
