Bluefield Colleges recruiting students into teachers


Bluefield College held a special ceremony, to recognize a High School Student for committing to a career in Education. 

  Graham High School student Jade Clyburn will be enrolling at Bluefield College. She signed an official document committing to the school.

Leaders at the College held ceremony, similar to a formal signing for sports athletes, to celebrate Clyburns' commitment to education. 

The college held this ceremony to draw more attention to the need to recruit students that want to be future educators, in the same manner colleges recruit athletes. 

With teacher shortages, we wanted to highlight our educators during teacher appreciation week," says Thomas Brewster, Dean for School of Education at Bluefield College. "We went to a K-12 school and selected a teaching candidate who's chosen to attend Bluefield College in the area of Teacher Education. We recognize them with a signing ceremony to elevate the teaching profession, just as we elevate athletic signing."

Jade intends to study teacher education at the college.
