Teacher Appreciation Week 2015

From Mrs. Stephenson in the 1st grade to Mr. Chavis in the 12th grade, we've all had a teacher who influenced our life. The faculty and staff at Western Governors University want to take a moment to say thank you to all teachers, those who made an impact in our lives and those who are making a difference today. As part of saying thanks, WGU offers you eligibility for a scholarship, a free application to WGU, and the chance to enter a sweepstakes.
