Champions of Education Awards Gala

The University of South Carolina College of Education holds an annual “Champions of Education” gala to honor the commitment and leadership of our alumni and supporters of education throughout our state. 

This signature event will generate significant funding in support of our state’s future educators, giving them the tools they need to make a lifelong impact on students. Your financial support is vital in helping our college equip future generations of leaders to inspire, encourage and motivate South Carolina’s learners.

Sponsorship opportunities are available; email Development Director Teesa Brunson about becoming a sponsor for the gala.

During the event, the College of Education will present several awards to educators including its Retired Educator Award, Veteran Teacher Award, Outstanding New Teacher Award, Educator Working Outside the Classroom Award, Diversity and Equity Award and Distinguished Service Award. These awards celebrate and honor our “Champions of Education” who exhibit excellence in education or contribute mightily to their field. Funds generated by this event help our college expand on its commitment to educate and enrich our state’s learners and leaders through scholarships, professional development and service.
