Hendersonville Faculty Recognize Local Teachers

February 17, 2014 - Faculty from Union University’s School of Education recently participated in a local Chamber of Commerce event to extend appreciation to local educators. Teachers and administrators from the surrounding area attended the event that was held in their honor, obtaining an opportunity to win a door prize and receive free giveaways from area businesses.

School of Education faculty distributed Golden Apple lapel pins to educators in attendance at the event. The pins were just a small token of appreciation for the work that K-12 teachers and administrators complete on a daily basis in area schools. Those interested in learning more about Union University and its degree programs also received related information.

Dr. Charles Lea and Dr. Eric Marvin represented Union’s School of Education, while Mrs. Rene Dauer served as a representative of Union’s BSOL degree program. The Golden Apple event was held at the Hendersonville public library.

In relation to the event, Dr. Charles Lea said, “ Union’s School of Education is pleased to support this annual event to honor teachers in the Hendersonville public schools.  We partner with the Chamber, Sumner County schools, and local businesses to advance the Education profession through Union’s Leadership Academy, now in its third year of operation. ”

Union’s participation in the event marked the School of Education’s second year to bring recognition to local teachers in this way. The event included a time of fellowship and refreshments for those in attendance.
