Each year at Commencement, Whitman College is pleased to acknowledge and honor an outstanding elementary, middle or high school teacher who contributed to the academic and individual success of a Whitman senior. By conferring the Distinguished Teaching Award, Whitman celebrates the exceptional contributions of special teachers who have guided and inspired members of your class.
The winning teacher will receive a monetary award and be publicly acknowledged at Commencement ceremony. It is a great honor for both the teacher and the graduating senior who nominated them. The nomination process for 2023 is already closed.
