Educators Hall of Fame 2011 Inductees
East Carolina University’s College of Education is pleased to have had this opportunity to recognize 20 individuals for their extensive contributions to the field of education. The Educators Hall of Fame was initiated in 1999 to permanently acknowledge education professionals and associations who have made distinguished contributions to the field of education through service and mission. Nominations were secured with a minimum $1000 gift to the College for the establishment of the Educators Hall of Fame Endowment Scholarship. Scholarships are given to outstanding education majors. The awards ceremony was held Saturday, October 15, 2011
