Behind Every Graduate
The Harold W. Pote “Behind Every Graduate” Award
Drexel University's Award for Excellence in Secondary School Teaching
In 2006, Drexel University initiated the “Behind Every Graduate” Award for Excellence in Secondary Teaching. Recipients of the award are nominated by Drexel seniors who recall the high school teacher who inspired them to pursue a college education, seek a new perspective on learning or pursue a particular major or career. Since the 2006 commencement ceremonies, Drexel honored 21 of these teachers and the students who nominated them.
Graduating seniors are invited to nominate that special high school teacher who inspired them to pursue a college education as they embark on their careers.
