Our annual Stars of Education awards gala was a resounding success. More than 400 educators, business leaders, elected officials, and community members celebrated education in the Wake County Public School System. Together we raised more than $50,000 that will go directly towards supporting the hard working individuals in WCPSS.

We wholeheartedly thank each one of our attendees who made the night a success. Our Teacher Innovation Grantees, WCPSS Hall of Fame Inductees, and Vernon Malone Friend of Education Award recipients have repeatedly told us how humbled they were by the entire event.

For the first time this year we asked you to thank the Stars of Education in your life by filling out a “Stars Among Us” post card. At the end of the night, we picked up more than 330 cards of appreciation for teachers, principals and support staff in WCPSS. Thank you for helping us honor the stars that shine brightly every day in our local schools.  These cards are in route to classrooms and offices across our district at this very moment!
