Hannibal, MO. - On Friday, April 20, the Missouri Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (MACTE) honored 67 outstanding beginning teachers as part of the spring conference held at the Capitol Plaza Hotel in Jefferson City.  This award is only given every other year. Each Missouri college or university identified two exceptional teacher education graduates in their first or second year of teaching as recipients of this award.  The education department at HLG first got recommendations from all the principals of the first and second year teachers, and then the Teacher Education Committee made the final selection. Each recipient received a handcrafted crystal apple mounted on a lighted, engraved stand. 

Stephanie Whaley, Physical Science teacher at Mark Twain High School in Center, and Christina Hubert, fifth grade teacher at Eugene Field Elementary School in Hannibal, were honored as graduates of the Hannibal-LaGrange College Teacher Education Program.
