Local leaders and celebrities delivered short TED-style talks about the importance of K-12 education and how their classroom experiences impacted their lives during the NC State College of Education’s first EdTalks Monday, Oct. 21, 2019. We also celebrated alumni who had received national, state and district-wide awards in 2018-19 for their work in K-12 schools.

Help Us Prepare More Extraordinary Educators
Penny Ferrell, an art teacher at A.B. Combs Magnet Elementary School, made this wolf using children's thumbprints. Her wolf reflects what can happen when creative educators inspire students to work together for a greater good.
You can help us prepare more extraordinary educators like Penny and all the award-winners listed above with a gift to the NC State College of Education. Your support allows us to provide the kinds of scholarships, leadership experiences, mentorships and experiential learning and research opportunities that our students need to become extraordinary educators. When you invest in our college, you invest in children and families across North Carolina.
