The North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching recently hosted an alumni weekend seminar at Pinehurst, N.C. This professional development seminar focused on the "Enduring Myths and Emerging Realities of the South." Timber Drive Elementary School in Wake County was recognized and honored as an NCCAT Golden Apple School during the event. The recognition means that every teacher on the school's faculty who has ever attended an NCCAT seminar made a contribution to the center's annual fund-raising campaign. Accepting the award are (front row, left to right): Nancy Finger, Faye Marshburn, Donna Stevens and Sue King. (Back row, left to right): Diane Campbell, Lynne Thornton, Sharon Midgette, NCCAT School Chair at Timber Drive, Barbara Talley, Rosemary Harris and Nella Smith.
