School of Education Hosts One-Stop Shop and Scholarship Benefit and Art Auction

North Carolina Central University’s School of Education will make it convenient for prospective teachers to learn more about the teaching profession and related fields in education at the One-Stop Teacher Education Shop on Saturday, Dec. 1, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the H. M. Michaux Jr. School of Education Building. Freddie McNeil, human resources administrator for Durham Public Schools, will deliver the keynote address.

Participants who already hold a bachelor’s degree can bring an official copy of their transcripts, enroll at NCCU, sign up for classes, declare an education major and apply for financial assistance — and do it within an hour. Undergraduates undecided on their major are also welcome to attend and gain insight into the education process.

The event is open to anyone interested in teaching, but the School of Education is specifically targeting these groups:

  • Second-degree candidates
  • Transfer and community college students
  • Add-on licensure candidates
  • Licensure-only candidates, undergraduate

The One-Stop Teacher Education Shop is an annual outreach effort of the School of Education designed to recruit, register and enroll individuals looking to earn an education degree from NCCU. The first one-stop was held in 2005.

Also on Dec. 1, the School of Education will host the second annual Cecelia Steppe-Jones endowed scholarship benefit and art auction at 7 p.m. in the School of Education. Fifteen of NCCU’s education stars will be recognized along with former school of education deans Dr. Walter Brown and Dr. Sammie Campbell-Parrish. The fifteen honorees include:
