The Teacher Pinning Ceremony is a time-honored tradition marking the occasion when one is welcomed into the teaching profession. It is a symbolic ceremony denoting a milestone in an educator’s life. Candidates will be presented a College of Education pin that not only signifies their association with the university, but also represents their affiliation with the honorable profession of teaching. Many professions hold this type of ceremony to honor their new colleagues. This is the eighth year that the College of Education has held a Pinning Ceremony. In the past, many of our honorees have said this event is more meaningful than commencement. Our keynote speaker will be Ms. Trinina Pouncy, a teacher at Ruth Doyle Middle School in Conway.
The ceremony will be held on Friday, May 2, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. in Reynolds Performance Hall on the University of Central Arkansas campus.
