Ems, Pacific University to Recognize Local Teachers

By Eugene Emeralds | April 24, 2018 1:04 PM

The Emeralds are proud to announce a new Partnership with Pacific University in Eugene. In conjunction with Pacific University's teacher preparation programs, the Emeralds will honor a different K-12 teacher before each Monday game. The award will recognize local teachers that have gone above and beyond to inspire their students. The Emeralds are accepting nominations for the award from the public through May 15, 2018. Submit your 250 word nomination to info@emeraldsbaseball.com with the subject "Pacific University Teacher of the Week".

Over the course of the season, six teachers will be selected for the "Teacher of the Week" award. Winners will receive a personalized award and a VIP experience at that night's Emeralds game.  

 "With the Emeralds reading program in its 9th season, we know how hard teachers work to support their students and with this new award we will not only be giving them a unique experience at the ballpark but giving students and parents a chance to give back by nominating their favorite teachers," said Ems Assistant General Manager, Matt Dompe. 

"The children of the state of Oregon deserve the best teachers we can possibly provide them. Teacher of the Week is a wonderful way to recognize the amazing teachers Oregon has to offer," said Pacific University Director, School of Learning and Teaching, Mindie Dieu.
