WCE Promotes Teaching Profession with Billboards, Social Media

Tuesday, June 06, 2017

“It Begins with Teachers” is part of a long-term effort by the Watson College to promote the teaching profession through real people sharing real stories about teachers who have inspired them. During the first week of May, UNCW students, faculty and staff, along with WCE school and community partners, were encouraged to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week by posting a shout-out, story or photo of an inspirational teacher using #ItBeginsWithTeachers and tagging @UNCWWatsonEd. Thanks to everyone who took the time to join in this effort.

Digital billboard ads were introduced this spring to raise awareness of the Watson College and promote the teaching profession. The new ads appeared at eight Wilmington locations throughout May and early June.

A hawk was spotted checking out our billboard on the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge on May 12!

WCE’s “Watson Wednesdays” campaign is also still going strong. Look for Watson T-shirts on campus, in the community and on social media and share photos with us!

If you would like be part of the Watson Wednesdays initiative to promote the Watson College and the teaching profession, we’d like to hear from you. Post a comment on Watson’s Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages, or contact Susan Finley at finleys@uncw.edu.
