In a new episode of A Miner Detail, host Ryan Miner will unwind Montgomery County’s progress in helping its needy residents. Last Tuesday, the Interfaith Works of Rockville held its 18th annual Companies Caring Breakfast in North Bethesda to discuss the state of Montgomery County’s safety net.
This week, in the first half of A Miner Detail, host Ryan will interview Interfaith Works of Rockville CEO, Shane Rock, Margo Fonoroff, and Mary Ann Sestili.
Margo Fonoroff is a former public school teacher and principal. Both Fornoff and her husband have organized the annual Park Potomac Ice Cream Social for Charity, involving hundreds of residents and local businesses within the community, according to a news release. In the past five years, the event has collected thousands of donated new backpacks and school supplies for needy schoolchildren. Mary Ann Sestili received the Legacy of Leadership Award. Sestili has volunteered for the nonprofit’s Friends in Action Program, mentoring needy families. She then served on its board as secretary, chairwoman and now vice chairwoman of its Governance Committee.
In the latter half of the show, Ryan will interview Diana M. Pearce, Ph.D., Senior Lecturer and Director, Center for Women’s Welfare of University of Washington, School of Social Work about the Self-Sufficiency Standard, and alternative measures of the costs of a basic-needs budget, varied by family type, and place.
Three Montgomery County Public Schools teachers are in the running for an annual award that honors one of the area’s top educators.
The finalists for the county’s 2015–2016 Teacher of the Year award can be found leading classrooms in Chevy Chase, Gaithersburg and Damascus.
Josephine Luster teaches in The Center Program for the Highly Gifted at Chevy Chase Elementary School, Jill Raspen is a sixth-grade English teacher at Ridgeview Middle School in Gaithersburg and Joseph Gannon Jr. teaches social studies at Damascus High School.
Ryan Miner, host of A Miner Detail of the Change Montgomery County radio network, will interview Ms. Luster, Ms. Raspen and Mr. Gannon about their nominations for Montgomery County Teacher of The Year, and will listen in as they each discuss what drives them as educators and how their students challenge them inside of the classroom.

Join me Hezekiah L. Montgomery along with my Co-Host Nichelle Johnson as I do my first Excerpt readings from my first novel REDISCOVERING KIA. We are in our last month of fundraising for REDISCOVERING KIA THE PLAY so I'm looking forward to doing something different since the book came out. People have told me that they've enjoyed REDISCOVERING KIA. So as part of our fundraising month I'm doing my first reading ever. Am I little nervous, yes, but I know that I'm going to have some fun as well as I read, talk about the reading and have discussion as well.
Rediscovering Kia was my testimony that God had me right down to be able to help others that may get caught up in sin and don't know how to get back on course to God. As I wrote there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, we and I mean us, you and me have to hold on and not give up and not worry about what others are thinking because we have a God who's waiting with His arms OPEN WIDE for us to return to Him and be a light for others.
I will say that I enjoyed the last show with all of the support t that was there to discuss the book and how it's going to be an awesome play. I'm totally siked right now with jus the thought of my first novel becoming a play. So with that say, join me as I read, ignite your interest and plug you into supporting REDISCOVERING KIA THE PLAY. And I'll see you at the Mirror...
