Education Hall of Fame
The tradition of preparing quality educators began here on the dry frontier, long before New Mexico statehood. Today the WNMU College of Education proudly acknowledges the work of these pioneer educators and those that have followed them. The Education Hall of Fame was initiated in May 1985 by Tom Holland in recognition of his mother, Cora Miller Holland, who graduated from the New Mexico Normal School in the class of 1899.
The purpose of the Education Hall of
Fame is to recognize and honor exemplary educators, and to serve as a
depository of record for the accomplishments of those selected. To qualify for
the Hall of Fame, a candidate must meet the following criteria.
· Candidates may also be Administrators and Counselors who started their careers as teachers, made the transition to administration or counseling, and continued to make significant contributions to the lives of children.
These honored educators are elected to the Hall of Fame for their special ability to impart knowledge in the classroom, to inspire a willingness to learn, to instill confidence in students, and to demonstrate respect for both learning and students.
Our students and faculty see these model educators as an inspiration in their work of “igniting and nurturing a spirit of learning for both educator and student.” The Hall of Fame portraits and plaques presently adorn the walls and halls of the College of Education in the Felix Martinez -Allen Bacon Fall Building.
