NC State College of Education Chancellor Visit 2016

Chancellor Randy Woodson spends one day every year at each of NC State University's 10 colleges. This year, we wanted to show Chancellor Woodson how the College of Education makes an impact every single day beyond the walls of Poe Hall.

The first stop on our tour was Enloe Magnet High School in Raleigh. Chancellor Woodson had lunch with a few products of the College of Education, including Principal Will Chavis who earned his Ed.D. from the College in 2015.

We wanted to show Chancellor Woodson our alumni in action, so we stopped by College of Education alumnus John Lawhon's Math 3 class.

John Lawhon graduated from the College in 2012 with a B.S. in Mathematics Education.

Chancellor Woodson took a few questions from the class before we continued our tour.

Next, we traveled across Raleigh to A.B. Combs Magnet Elementary School to visit more of our College of Education alumni.

Principal Muriel Summers, winner of the 2014 Friday Medal, greeted Chancellor Woodson.

The students and staff of A.B. Combs presented Chancellor Woodson with a grand reception, including a red carpet and a performance by the school chorus.

After this touching reception, we went to College of Education alumna Erin Metkowski's 2nd grade class for some Q&A with the students.

Erin Metkowski received her B.S. in Elementary Education from the College in 2014.

Before leaving A.B. Combs, Chancellor Woodson attended a dessert reception with more College of Education alumni who work at the school.

Chancellor Woodson chatted with Cayla Green, a senior Elementary Education student who is currently student teaching at A.B. Combs.
Students dressed up as their role models in honor of the Chancellor's visit. These students dressed as Pelé, Neil Armstrong and Thurgood Marshall.
Our visit at A.B. Combs concluded with the presentation of a generous donation to the General Hugh Shelton Leadership Center, an initiative housed at NC State.

Our final destination of the day was the Community Counseling, Education and Research Center (CCERC), a counseling center run by College of Education faculty and graduate students in downtown Raleigh.

Marc Grimmett, co-director of CCERC and College of Education professor, explains how the center aims to provide culturally inclusive, socially just counseling services to everyone in need in the Raleigh community, regardless of income level.

From teaching the future leaders of our great state to providing low-cost counseling services, the College of Education has a profound impact on our community each and every day. We had a great time showcasing how College of Education students, faculty and alumni Think and Do during our 2016 Chancellor Visit.
