Congratulations to teacher Margaret Maurice a teacher at Hidden Valley Elementary School  in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools system. She is the recipient of an NCCAT A. Craig Phillips Honored Educator Scholarship.

This scholarship was established in honor of Dr. A. Craig Phillips who served as State Superintendent of North Carolina for twenty years from 1968–1988. He instituted state-supported kindergarten for all North Carolina children, secured the first state money earmarked to improve reading programs in early grades, expanded programs for exceptional children, oversaw the development of the Basic Education Program and Career Development Plan, and expanded employment for teachers to ten months per year. The A. Craig Phillips Honored Educator Scholarship pays tribute to the legacy of an outstanding North Carolinian who spent his life finding ways to strengthen administrators, empower teachers, and motivate parents to support education for all children. Great job Ms. Maurice!

She is attended "Literacy Strategies for Specialist Teachers" in Cullowhee this week. She is pictured with NCCAT Faculty member Gin Hodge. HES cover teacher travel, substitute pay and include money for classroom use. The NCCAT Honored Educator Scholarship program will open for applications in January. For more information visit
