Celebrate the Stars of Education in Wake County
October 10, 2018
5:00-8:00 pm | Raleigh Marriott City Center
Stars of Education
Stars of Education, presented by PNC Bank, is an annual awards gala dinner to celebrate and honor those who form the backbone of a strong public education system in Wake County. This event is WakeEd’s largest fundraiser of the year, with proceeds going to support our mission and program of work each day.
This year we are proud to present two prestigious awards in education – the Vernon Malone Friend of Education Award and the Dr. Robert E. Bridges Lifetime Achievement Award – to members of our community who have dedicated their lives and careers to improving public education. Seven outstanding educators, alumni, and community leaders will also be inducted into the Wake County Public School System Hall of Fame.
We will also celebrate WakeEd’s programs and teacher leaders, including our SummerSTEM coaches, Teacher Innovation Grant recipients, and Beginning Teacher Leadership Network Leadership Council for the impact they have made in Wake County Public Schools.
