Meridian, Mississippi Both current and future educators were recognized for their outstanding achievements Thursday night.
Mississippi State University, Meridian inducted 18 new members into Phi Delta Kappa, which is the premier professional association for educators. Ten outstanding graduate education students were chosen by the faculty at MSU for their accomplishments. Dr. George Thomas says the honor celebrates the school's high-achievers.
"But also, we want to congratulate all the students graduating in the college of education," said Thomas. "We have students getting bachelor's degrees, master's degrees, specialist degrees, so, you know, you have a wide diversity there."
This is the seventh year the Division of Education at MSU Meridian hosted the banquet.
