2017 Friday Medal Ceremony

Wednesday, November 15, 2017 | 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM | Friday Institute

The Friday Medal honors significant, distinguished, and enduring contributions to education and beyond through advocating innovation, advancing education, and imparting inspiration. In recognition of the commitment of Bill and Ida Friday to educational excellence, the College of Education’s William & Ida Friday Institute for Educational Innovation created The Friday Medal. This award is given annually to those who embody the mission and spirit of the Friday Institute.

In collaboration with the NC School Superintendents Association, the 2017 Friday Medal will be presented to following seven superintendents, which we will present to them both for their own accomplishments and as representatives of the many other dedicated and innovative rural superintendents who serve the students of the North Carolina:

  • Darrin Hartness – Davie County
  • Anthony Jackson – Vance County
  • Jeff McDaris – Transylvania County
  • Janet Mason – Rutherford County
  • Lynn Moody – Rowan Salisbury
  • Patrick Miller – Greene County
