A Spotlight on Education

by | Feb 16, 2023 | Education, Online Exclusives

Pender Education Partnership is now accepting nominations of distinguished alumni and educators for its Wall of Fame.

Pender Education Partnership, a nonprofit foundation established to enhance educational opportunities and assist public school educators, established a Wall of Fame in 2022 to honor distinguished Pender County Schools’ alumni and educators. The Wall of Fame is displayed at the Pender County Schools Board of Education building.

“Pender County Schools has been blessed with outstanding educators throughout the years,” says Tammie Parris, Pender Education Partnership (PEP) president. “And our school system has produced many outstanding alumni who have gone on to careers that impacted our community, our state and our nation.”

PEP is currently accepting nominations for the Wall of Fame Class of 2023.

A selection committee will review the nominations and present at least one alumni recommendation and one educator recommendation to PEP. Honorees will be announced in March 2023 and honored at the June Pender County School’s Board of Education meeting.

“Pender Education Partnership believes this is an opportunity to shine the spotlight on outstanding alumni and educators who have made an impact on public education,” Parris says.

Organizations are welcome to partner with PEP on the Wall of Fame. Last year the Rotary Club of Coastal Pender, whose international motto is Service Above Self, was a co-sponsor of the Wall of Fame.
