Tennessee Tech University’s College of Education recently held receptions recognizing outstanding Tennessee educators working in partnership with the college and its candidates in practicum and residency programs. The events also highlighted future educators at the graduate and undergraduate level.
White County’s Janice McFerrin, teacher at White County High School, was honored as the High School Educator Award winner.
“Our students have access to and benefit from the experiences and examples set by the dedicated educators working across Tennessee,” said Lisa Zagumny, College of Education Dean. “Only through such partnerships can the college prepare future educators and impact the state’s P-12 students.”
Nominations for current educators were accepted from College of Education students, faculty, and staff.
Guest speaker for the 2018 event was Lillian Hartgrove, chair of the State Board of Education and Vice President of Workforce Development and Education for the Cookeville-Putnam County Chamber of Commerce.
The awards reception and teacher appreciation week were supported by the college’s Appreciation Partners, regional businesses offering door prizes and discounts for educators.
