Annual KVOE radio auction brings in $14,132 for National Teacher's Hall of Fame induction activities Angie Miller

For the 28th consecutive year, bidders from near and far tuned in and bid well for the National Teacher's Hall of Fame.

The annual Hall of Fame Radio Auction brought in a total of just over $14,000 for next year's induction activities both in Washington D.C. and Emporia. This year's auction also received an additional boost from local donors and past inductees who pledged funds before the evening's auction even began.

Hall of Fame Director Carol Strickland says the generosity of those who bid and contributed items to the auction, is a great indicator of how the Hall of Fame's reputation continues to grow not only locally, but nationally as well.

 

KVOE Program Director Scott Hayes believes the annual auction, and Hall of Fame itself, garners a large amount of attention, especially in the local area, because everyone can think back to a time where a teacher impacted their life.

 

Once again the auction was broadcast from the Emporia State Federal Credit Union's Industrial Road Branch. ESFCU Manager Angie Miller says they look forward to doing everything they can to help the Hall of Fame each year. Miller says "people in education are special."

 

The average cost of induction activities each year is around $40,000 and covers transportation, lodging, food, activities and other expenses for inductees and their families.
