Accepting Nominations for 2016 Arts Educator of the Year Award

Nominations recognizing arts teachers in Guilford County School must be submitted by May 6, 2016

ArtsGreensboro, in partnership with Guilford County Schools, is accepting nominations for the 2016 Arts Educator of the Year. Established in 2006, this award recognizes an outstanding arts educator in the Guilford County School System. The award will be presented at a upcoming Guilford County Board of Education meeting.

To be eligible, the nominee must be employed by Guilford County Schools in a primary role as an arts educator—one who teaches the visual or performing arts including drama, music, and dance. The 2016 recipient will receive $1,000 to use for professional development.

For the first time, two teachers were named Arts Educators of the Year in 2015: Donnie Walter, of Northwest Guilford Middle, and Cassy Whitley, of The Academy at Lincoln. Other previous recipients include Ed Kimbrough, Julie Rachlin, Michaela Hafley, Brian McMath, Wade Billesen, Andy Mock, and Paula Owens.

Nominations for the 2016 Arts Educator of the Year Award are due to ArtsGreensboro no later than 5 pm on Friday, May 6, 2016.
