Media Advisory – New teaching graduate pinning ceremony

CARBONDALE, Ill. – A total of 97 graduates from Southern Illinois University Carbondale’s Teacher Education Programs will be recognized during a special pinning ceremony on May 4 at 5 p.m. in the Student Center Ballroom B.

Graduates from teaching programs across campus, including Rend Lake Marketplace and University of Lake County, will be honored.

After three semesters of practical experience, students devote their final semester to full-time student teaching, working in numerous schools located all over the region. They will receive their pins, marking the end of their SIU undergraduate experiences, from the teachers they’ve served alongside this spring. A reception will be held after the ceremony.
