Seeing the quality teachers that we produce being recognized for their efforts and hard work is a reflection, not only on their labors and determination, but also the dedication and resolve of the education faculty and the public school teachers and administrators who are a part of the process. I know these graduates will make a difference in the world—one student at a time.”
