On May 24, 2024, the Future Teacher Send-Off event celebrated the achievements of over 150 student teachers, each on the brink of graduation. Students from undergraduate, Transition to Teaching, and Master’s in Teaching programs gathered to mark the culmination of their rigorous and transformative educational journeys. The ceremony was a heartfelt tribute to the future educators who are ready to inspire and shape the next generation, their commitment to the teaching profession shining brightly. Many of the graduating students were participants of the EWU Reading Club, a partnership with Spokane Public Schools to help literacy in grade school.
