Beck attends N.C. teaching program

Carla T. Beck of Hayesville High School recently attended a program held at the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching, a recognized national leader in professional development programming for our state’s teachers.

Beck was named the NCCAT 2017–2018 Beulah Padgett Whichard Honored Educator Scholar. This scholarship was established in honor of the late Beulah Padgett Whichard, who was a native of Clay County and taught in Clay and Durham county schools for 30 years.

Willis P. Whichard, a retired college law school dean, retired judge and former legislator established this scholarship in honor of his mother.

It pays tribute to her lifelong commitment to the teaching profession. NCCAT’s Honored Educator Scholarship Program gives tribute to outstanding individuals and educators by providing scholarship funds in their names.

Increasing teacher effectiveness is fundamental to improving public education. NCCAT provides teachers with new knowledge, skills, teaching methods, best practices and information to take back to their classrooms. NCCAT conducts a variety of high-quality professional development for pre-kindergarten through 12th grade
