George R. Brinson Honored Educator Scholarship presentation

Kudos to Joshua Gaskill on being named District Teacher of the Year and receiving the George R. Brinson Honored Educator Scholarship this morning at Pamlico County Schools.

NCCAT honored retired superintendent of Pamlico County Schools, George R. Brinson, on June 13, 2012, with the presentation of an Honored Education Scholarship in his name. At the time, Lisa Lachman, president of the Pamlico County Education Foundation, stated, "Mr. George and the word 'education' are synonymous."

Mr.Brinson was a teacher, principal and superintendent for Pamlico County Schools for three decades. The scholarship, in perpetuity, honors an outstanding North Carolina educator who led remarkable change in Pamlico county and North Carolina public schools. The HES Program of NCCAT provides an opportunity to recognize life's greatest educators and advocates by establishing scholarships in their names.

The endowed scholarship provides for an outstanding teacher from PCS to attend an NCCAT seminar of choice. All costs associated with the teacher's participation in the program are paid by the scholarship fund--including program materials, instruction, food, lodging, transportation and payment for a substitute teacher as needed. Moreover, the teacher will receive a $250 stipend for use in a classroom project. Click here for more on this program.

Congratulations Joshua and we look forward to seeing you!
