East Carolina University’s College of Education is pleased to have had this opportunity to recognize twenty-seven individuals and organizations from around the state 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 will be given to outstanding education majors. The awards ceremony was held Saturday, October 30, 2004.
We were also honored to receive an address at this year’s ceremony by Dr. Willie Gilchrist. Dr. Gilchrist is the Superintendent of Halifax County Schools and currently serves on the UNC System Board of Governors. He has been recognized twice in the Educators Hall of Fame.
