This year, the Teacher Education Department is awarding one student the “Teaching Candidate of Character” award.

Additionally, candidates must demonstrate positive, Christ-like characteristics and dispositions.

This individual is of strong Christian, moral, and mental Character. A great role model to her peers and future students. She has prioritized being a student first, and extra curriculars second. She is consistently present, engaged, and respectful in the classroom, and has continually been invested in growing as a pre-service teacher. It is my pleasure to announce that the “Teaching Candidate of Character” award goes to Miss Cassidy Anderson.
