The East Carolina University College of Education hosted 36 high school guidance counselors from eastern North Carolina Feb. 2
The “Each One – Reach One” event informed counselors about the university’s teacher education programs and education as a career choice.

The counselors represented Beaufort, Cumberland, Dare, Edgecombe, Gates, Greene, Hertford, Hyde, Johnston, Lenoir, Martin, Nash-Rocky Mount, Pitt, Roanoke Rapids, Wayne and Wilson school districts.
Representatives from ECU Admissions, the Honors College and Financial Aid provided information for the counselors to help them assist students in their districts with applications for the university. College of Education personnel shared details about the university’s teacher education programs. They encouraged the counselors to prompt students about considering education as a career choice.
Participants indicated that the workshop was “very organized” with pertinent information. One counselor said, “This was an awesome opportunity. Thank you for the wealth of knowledge.”
