National Teacher Appreciation Week, May 2 - 6, 2016

Teachers Week

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. To say thanks, WGU is offering current and aspiring teachers the chance to apply for a scholarship and to apply to WGU for free for a limited time.
