WSU Minority Teacher Recruitment Program Planned at Seattle

PULLMAN, Wash. — Future Teachers of Color, an outreach program
sponsored by the Washington State University College of Education, is
hosting a recruitment reception in Seattle for students of color interested in
becoming teachers or attending WSU. The reception is scheduled from
3:30-5:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 14, at the Washington Athletic Club, 1325 6th

This year’s reception is the sixth fall recruitment event hosted in Seattle by
Future Teachers of Color (FTOC), according to Program Director Milton Lang.

Students from high schools and community colleges who are interested in
enrolling at WSU or in careers in education are encouraged to attend, as are
their parents. WSU faculty and students will be on hand to discuss
admissions, scholarships and campus life, and to answer any other questions,
Lang said.

The keynote address will be provided by WSU Regent Ken Alhadeff, the
Seattle businessman and philanthropist who has supported FTOC since its
inception. Admission is free, and food and beverages will be provided.

Separate workshops will be held during the FTOC program for minority
educators who are interested in graduate degrees in education. The new
program, designed to facilitate graduate studies for teachers and
administrators of color, is known as Future Leaders of Color.

Those who intend to participate in the recruitment reception are asked to RSVP
by Nov. 11 by contacting Milton Lang at 509/335-4864 or
