Roy E. Harkin Teacher Recognition Award

The Teacher Recognition Award was established in 2008 in memory of Dr. Roy E. Harkin. Dr. Harkin served as the chair of the Education Department at UNCW from 1976 to 1979. In 1979 the department became the School of Education, and Dr. Harkin was named as the first dean. He served as Dean until 1991. This award is funded by the family and friends of Dr. Harkin in recognition of his commitment to partnerships with public schools and his appreciation for the contributions of public school educators to teacher education programs and the preparation of prospective teachers. The award is designed to recognize a public school teacher who has contributed to the preparation of future teachers by demonstrating excellence as a partnership teacher and/or site coordinator.
