College of Education Students Honored for Academic Excellence

On February 5, 2016, forty-five East Carolina University freshmen and full time transfer students with an intended Teacher Education major were honored during the College of Education ECU EXCELS event. This event was a part of the annual ECU EXCELS program that recognizes students who are first time, full-time freshman or transfer students who earned a 3.0 GPA or higher during the fall semester.

There were a total of one hundred and thirty-four guests in attendance which included both honored students and their guests. Dr. Grant Hayes, Dean of the College of Education, brought words of recognition to the award recipients. Rebecca Poole, a junior mathematics education major, served as the keynote speaker for the event.  Brandon Armstrong, senior music-string performance major, provided musical entertainment.  Students received a Certificate of Academic Achievement, had an opportunity to interact with College of Education faculty, and were served light refreshments at the event.
