Behind Every Graduate

The Harold W. Pote “Behind Every Graduate” Award

Graduating seniors are invited to nominate that special high school teacher who inspired them to pursue a college education as they embark on their careers. Award winners and their nominator will be honored at Drexel's 2014 Graduation Ceremony.

In 2006, Drexel University initiated the Harold W. Pote "Behind Every Graduate" Award for Excellence in Secondary School Teaching. The award was created to acknowledge outstanding high school teachers who provided a new perspective or inspired a student to consider a certain major or career. Drexel University values the high school teachers who have inspired our graduates. Drexel honored four high school teachers and the students who nominated them at its commencement ceremonies. We will continue this tradition of honoring excellent high school teachers in 2014 and beyond.

The Behind Every Graduate Selection Committee will review the nominations and select awardees. Nominations are due by April 18, 2014.

Nominate your favorite teacher!
