Stars of Education
Stars of Education 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.
In 2019, we were proud to present the prestigious Vernon Malone Friend of Education Award to Dale Jenkins, a member of the Wake County community who has dedicated his life to improving public education in North Carolina. Six outstanding educators, alumni, and community leaders were also inducted into the Wake County Public School System Hall of Fame. The event also celebrated WakeEd’s programs and teacher leaders, including our SummerSTEM coaches, for the impact they have made in Wake County Public Schools.
