Stars of Education Awards Gala

Often we forget about the entire community of educators behind our students\’ success in Wake County Public School System (WCPSS). Though they work hard to improve our community every day, they aren\’t shown the recognition they have earned.

On October 14, WakeEd Partnership will pause to honor these individuals who shine in leadership, service and dedication to Wake County Public School System through our Stars of Education Awards Gala. Stars of Educations honors those who form the backbone of public education in WCPSS. At the event, we will award former Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce president Harvey Schmitt with the Vernon Malone Friend of Education award — our most prestigious award. We will also induct six individuals into the Wake County Public School System Hall of Fame, including Dr. Valerie Brown Schild (Education), Tom Oxholm (Business), Marshall Butler (Arts), Bobbie Guthrie (Athletics), Nita Fulbright (Community), and Gary Greene (Entrepreneur). Twenty-seven recipients of Teacher Innovation Grant recipients will be recognized as well.

Come join the community, businesses, civic and education leaders to honor these individuals for their hard work and dedication to WCPSS. Stars of Education will be held at the Raleigh Marriott City Center from 5:00pm-7:30pm. Buy you ticket here.
