SAIPAN, Northern Mariana Islands (April 28, 2002 – Radio Australia)---The first group of locally trained teachers will graduate next month from Northern Marianas College.

Acting College President Barbara Moir said 28 students are about to successfully complete a bachelor of science in elementary education degree.

She said it's the realization of one of the college's goals -- to have Northern Marianas teachers earn their degrees without leaving the islands.

The director of the School of Education at Northern Marianas College, Sallie Sablan, said the students -- who will graduate on May 25 -- have been swamped with offers to teach at local public schools.
