UNC Pembroke’s Dean of the School of Education Dr. Loury Floyd has been recognized for her work and contributions to the North Carolina Education Preparation Program. 
Floyd was honored with a plaque commemorating her involvement in September during the 40th Annual North Carolina Teacher Education Forum held in Raleigh. 

Floyd, currently a member of the Policy and Advocacy Committee, previously served as president of the NCACTE. While president, Floyd worked to create an annual Student Teacher of the Year award now in its seventh year. 

“As a former special education teacher, it has been a privilege to step in and positively impact North Carolina’s educator preparation programs,” Floyd said in a press release. “Our organization has and will continue to lean into moments of crisis to effectively lead our program faculty and students through an ever-changing landscape.” 

More than a dozen UNCP School of Education faculty and staff attended the forum as a show of support.
