American Education Week 2011

The charge of providing quality education to American children is not an easy one. Often those who dedicate themselves to this endeavor go unrecognized and at times fade into the background. Old Dominion believes that it is important to identify and recognize those individuals who have made this commitment. The Darden College of Education has jump-started a tradition of highlighting the achievements of educators who have gone above and beyond their duties during American Education Week. American Education week is a nationwide celebration spearheaded by the National Education Association (NEA).  Here at Old Dominion, the celebration puts a spotlight on the accomplishments of our alumni through the Darden College Alumni Fellow Awards ceremony.

The Darden College of Education Fellows program recognizes one alumnus or alumna from our various department for their outstanding efforts. The fellows were nominated by their respective academic departments and selected by the Darden College of Education.  As part of the program, these fellows will return to their alma mater to share their life experiences and provide inspiration to students and faculty alike.

ODU will host a celebration luncheon and Darden Symposiums featuring our Alumni Fellows on November 15, 2011
