Think back and name your favorite teacher when you were in school. Maybe it was a grade school teacher who made a lasting impression on you. Or maybe it was later on in your education. Whoever it was, consider nominating that teacher for the Adams State University Educator Hall of Fame.

The ASU Educator Hall of Fame Committee is seeking nominations for the 2023 Educator Hall of Fame Class.

The Adams State Educators Hall of Fame recognizes educators at any level who have made a significant contribution to the field of education. The committee is also pleased to announce the addition of a new category, support professionals, that will celebrate the contributions of staff who support students outside of the classroom.

Adams State has a strong history in preparing and contributing to the success of professionals in education. This award recognizes excellent educators in their fields of expertise and their demonstration of high moral character.

The deadline for the current round of nominations is December 16. The 2023 induction ceremony will take place in May 2023.

Nominations can be submitted online at; search “Educators Hall of Fame.” Nominations also can be hand-delivered to the School of Education located in Adams State McDaniel Hall Suite 241.
