Two area teachers are among the 250 from 27 countries and 47 states who have been selected to win an all-paid scholarship to Honeywell Educators @ Space Academy this June. The winners are Bonnie Dertz, of Lanark, who teaches at Freeport Middle School in Freeport, and Sara Hinderman of Apple River, who teaches in Orangeville School District. Dertz attended camp June 15-21, and Hinderman attended camp June 17-24. Their week of camp includes real-life astronaut training such as high-performance jet simulation, scenario-based space missions and water survival training. Once they return from camp, they should have photos of themselves in spacesuits doing space-training activities
