A Terrace school principal has been selected for a fellowship from a U-S-based college.

The Van Lunen Center for Executive Management in Christian Schools announced this morning that Centennial Christian School principal Edgar Veldman was chosen for a 2018-19 fellowship.

The Van Lunen Center's latest cohort of fellows include educators from 20 schools across the United States and Canada, and one from Japan. 

The Fellows program, now in its 12th year, is designed for school heads who seek professional development in their work as administrators of faith-based schools.

The majority of participant expenses are covered by the Van Lunen Center, including cost of instruction, lodging, meals, coaching and access to topic experts.
