NTHF Auction Sets $30K Goal for Double Induction Ceremony

Nov. 8, 2021 The Teachers College

The 30th annual National Teachers Hall of Fame auction will be held on Thursday, Nov. 18, with the goal of raising money for Induction Week 2022. The Class of 2020 has had its induction ceremony postponed three times because of CDC guidelines for the COVID-19, so the plan is to induct that five-member class, along with the soon-to-be-selected Class of 2022 during Induction Week, June 13-17, 2022. Because this will be a double induction, costs will be double, and the Hall of Fame is asking everyone who can to be a part of this major fundraiser.
