Recognizing Longwood’s New “Pre-Service Teachers”
On March 26, 2015, the College of Education and Human Services hosted a celebration to honor the 96 teacher candidates who were accepted into the Teacher Education program as of August 16, 2014 to January 15, 2015. Successful candidates must apply to the program, submit two positive faculty recommendations, have qualifying assessments, an overall GPA of 2.5 or higher and a minimum grade of C in introductory education courses and English 150. The teacher candidates were given Longwood nametags identifying them as pre-service educators and a commemorative certificate.
Chi Sigma Iota Induction
On April 21, 2015, the first cohort was inducted into Longwood’s Chi Sigma Iota honor society. CSI is an international honors society that values academic and professional excellence in counseling. Since its founding in 1985, Chi Sigma Iota has over 96,000 members and is equally balanced between professional and student members. Dr. Phyllis Jones, Assistant Professor of Counselor Education, is the faculty advisor.
Tricycles Donated to Head Start
Longwood’s Health and Physical Education Majors Club donated two heavy-duty tricycles to the Farmville Head Start program. The tricycles are sized for 3-and 4-year olds and are constructed for heavy use. Additionally, five appropriately-sized helmets were donated.
