On Saturday evening our Orlean Bullard Beeson School of Education celebrated 100 years of teacher education by presenting “Learning for Life Awards” to more than 100 distinguished graduates. Ninety-eight of the recipients, or members of their families, were present to accept the awards. Their professional pursuits are varied: teachers at all levels in all aspects of education; principals; superintendents; ministers; missionaries; musicians; business owners; health professionals; homemakers; and authors. They represent the thousands of graduates who have brought knowledge and hope to millions of people throughout the past century.
The world is better because of the Orlean Bullard Beeson School of Education.
