Thank An Educator

Recognize and celebrate the educators who made a difference in your life.

We are devoting this season of giving thanks to express our appreciation to the educators who made a difference in our lives and who are transforming lives, schools and communities across North Carolina, the nation and the world. Join our #ThankAnEducator movement to receive a complimentary T-shirt and for the chance to be featured in a series of college-wide videos that will be shared far and wide.

"One in particular [educator] that comes to mind instantly is Mrs. Buckin, my high school math teacher. To that point, I did not enjoy math and she showed me how to have fun with math. She changed my opinion of math. It’s wonderful how an educator can change your opinion of a subject."

"I had just moved to a new school district, and [my third-grade teacher] took the initiative to meet with me over the summer weekly so that I could catch up and make sure that I was on par with the students in my class. She made a big difference in my life."
