The Office of Admissions and the Office of Alumnae & Parent Relations have partnered to develop Teacher Appreciation Receptions across Wake County.
On Monday, February 21, during a teacher workday, representatives from Admissions and Alumnae & Parent Relations visited ten high schools in an effort to build stronger connections with alumnae teachers in our feeder schools. Teachers were given a wall clock featuring Meredith’s logo to display in their classrooms.
The schools visited were: Broughton, Cary, Green Hope, Leesville, Sanderson, Athens Drive, Wakefield, East Wake, Apex, and Middle Creek. Many alumnae were in attendance, and the events were very well received.
