Devoted teachers often receive little recognition for their efforts, and students have too few chances to reward them. That’s why each year Monmouth University seniors expecting to graduate have an opportunity to recognize superior teaching by nominating an outstanding secondary school teacher who played an important role in their lives.
The Monmouth University-Roberts Charitable Foundation Outstanding Teaching Award is awarded in May. The recipients, up to three each year, are brought to Monmouth and honored at a dinner prior to Commencement to which students and their parents are also be invited. Each honoree receives an award of $1,500. Furthermore, every nominated teacher receives a certificate of recognition.
