KNOXVILLE — There is only a little more than a week to nominate your favorite educator for a spot in the Educators Hall of Honor, housed in the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

Nominations are due Feb. 11, and the next group of Hall of Honor inductees will be announced during a ceremony which begins at 5:30 p.m. on March 24 at the UT Visitors Center.

The Hall of Honor is a place to acknowledge the work of individuals or groups who have made outstanding contributions to education in Knoxville, the state of Tennessee or the nation. Nominees can be teachers, counselors, administrators or others in the education field, as well as people who aren’t considered educators but who have had a significant impact on the field of education. Groups, such as schools or civic groups that have had significant impact on student learning, also can be nominated.

With a $1,000 contribution, a donor can make a nomination and have a plaque honoring the nominee placed in the Educators Hall of Honor, and the contribution to the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences will be included in a special endowment that provides critical scholarships for teacher interns and other undergraduate and graduate students in the college’s education programs.

For a contribution of $25,000 or more, a separate scholarship endowment fund will be established in the honoree’s or donor’s name.
