Wishing to recognize the significant impact so many educators have made in the lives of students, the UNCG School of Education is delighted to introduce a new initiative honoring Inspirational Educators.

We all have memories of particular teachers, instructors, and administrators who have made a difference in our lives, and the lives of so many others. Perhaps your mother was a Kindergarten teacher for 30 years, or a professor inspired you to become a school counselor, or your advisor encouraged you to apply for a research grant. Education comes in all shapes and sizes, but it's no doubt that it is a calling — and we want to honor those who answered that call to make a positive impact on the people and community around them. This permanent recognition, launching in the Spring of 2019, will be displayed prominently in the School of Education Building.

When you nominate an Inspirational Educator, your gift not only honors a legacy, but inspires our students and helps us provide them with the best preparation possible. All monies raised through this initiative will fund new scholarships for UNCG School of Education students. 
Submit a Nominee by January 31, 2019

The Impact of Inspiration

Over time, the UNCG School of Education will honor 1,000 Inspirational Educators, creating the Inspirational Educators Endowment of $1,000,000.

Each year, annual interest from the new endowment will fund merit-based scholarships and awards for School of Education students. This prestigious awards program will help attract more of the best and brightest students in the UNCG School of Education who demonstrate promise in the field of education. 

How it Works

A gift of at least $1,000 ensures a permanent place for the honoree as an Inspirational Educator. In addition, this gift enrolls the donor(s) in the John H. Cook Society for that year. 

  • Your $1,000 gift may be paid in installments over a 12-month period.
  • An Inspirational Educator may be nominated by an individual, their family, colleagues, or a group.
  • A gift of $26,000 allows you to nominate someone as an Inspirational Educator and establish an endowed scholarship in their name – or yours! Of this gift, $1,000 goes toward the Inspirational Educators Endowment to fund the Student Excellence Awards in the School of Education. The additional $25,000 may be paid over five years or included as part of your estate plans.
  • All gifts in support of Inspiration Educators and endowed scholarships are tax-deductible. 

Honor a Legacy

The person you choose to nominate should be considered a star in their field or have had a significant impact on you or your family. This may include professors, teachers, counselors, administrators, librarians, or other education professionals. This is a chance to say “thank you” or “well done” to someone who has changed a life and put their heart into their work.
