Celebrate the Stars of Education in Wake County

Stars of Education, presented by PNC Bank, is an annual awards dinner to celebrate and honor those who form the backbone of public education in our schools.

Join us for dinner as we celebrate and recognize the recipients of this year’s WakeEd Teacher Innovation Grants. In addition, we will be inducting honorees into the WCPSS Hall of Fame and presenting the prestigious Vernon Malone Friend of Education Award.
