Phil Kirk NCCAT Honored Educator Scholarship recipient

We were honored to have Rowan County Early College teacher Theresa Pierce, who is the 2019-2020 Rowan-Salisbury ‘Teacher of the Year.’ with us in Cullowhee for "Making Social Studies Curriculum Relevant." Ms. Pierce received the Phillip J. Kirk, Jr. Honored Educator Scholarship award. In 2006, the Development Foundation of the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching honored Mr. Kirk for being one of North Carolina’s best-known advocates for education by establishing the scholarship fund.

Mr. Kirk chose to present the scholarship each year to the Rowan-Salisbury Teacher of the Year. Congratulations to Ms. Pierce! She is pictured with Eric Grant the presenter of the program, who is Secondary ELA/Social Studies Curriculum Specialist with Buncombe County Schools.
