The College of Education hosted its annual Homecoming tailgate November 8 to welcome all of our alumni back to campus and celebrate the accomplishments of our distinguished alumni who have been named Teacher, Principal or Superintendent of the Year by local school districts from Regions 10 and 11.
During the 2013-2014 academic year, 14 local College of Education alumni received these prestigious awards. We invited all of them to join us for Homecoming festivities, and those who did were recognized by Dean Jerry Thomas in a special presentation.
The children of UNT's Child Development Lab recently hosted their annual tea party. The children helped to plan and were involved in preparation of the food, including egg salad sandwiches, cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches, fruit sun tea, scones with jam, tiny fairy pancakes, fruit slices and more.
The staff used the party preparation to teach hygiene and good nutrition, reading a recipe, setting the table, using good manners and sending invitations.
Supporters, outstanding students recognized at 2014 STAR Celebration
"STAR stands for Special Thanks and Recognition, and tonight we are excited to Thank and Recognize not only our scholarship donors and students, but all of our friends and supporters who make great things possible at the College of Education," said Jerry Thomas, dean of the College, as he began his remarks at the annual celebration on October 9 at Apogee Stadium.
Thousands of books gathered for Ugandan children
Students at E.P. Rayzor Elementary School in Denton ISD helped gather thousands of books to be sent to children in Uganda as part of a project started by College of Education Associate Professor Marc Cutright.
"...some kids even went door-to-door collecting. And they did this in about a week? Amazing," said Cutright. "It is testimony, I think, to the deep yearning of people to help those in need. All that needs to be provided is a tangible means to do so."
Continuing a winning culture at UNT: KHPR student Derek Akunne
Tough, tenacious, relentless – and fast. That's how Head Coach Dan McCarney describes Mean Green football's Derek Akunne when he's on the field - but academics are a priority for College of Education Kinesiology major Akunne. In addition to working hard for a career in physical therapy, he also sees how succeeding in the classroom can mean success on the field.
