250 UNI students officially on path to teaching


 250 students are now on their way to becoming teachers.

They're part of the University of Northern Iowa's College of Education.

An induction ceremony happened Tuesday afternoon at UNI's Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center, in which each student was pinned and affirmed.

"We feel, at the University of Northern Iowa, that teaching is a very powerful and noble profession. And we want to honor our candidates as often as possible for choosing this as a career path," said College of Education Dean Dr. Dwight C. Watson.

This is the 45th group of candidates inducted into the teacher education program since formal ceremonies began in 1991.
