Rogers was inducted into the VSU Educator Hall of Fame because she is a VSU alumni and was a finalist for Georgia Teacher of the Year. Along with 30 other educators from Georgia, Rogers will have her picture and biography displayed permanently in the lobby of Jennett Hall in the James L. and Dorothy H. Dewar College of Education and Human Services at the College of Education at VSU.
“I was humbled and honored to be inducted into Valdosta State's Educator Hall of Fame,” said Rogers. “It is awesome to be recognized for doing something that I love. To me, teaching is a calling, not a job.”
Rogers holds a Bachelor of Arts in English and a Master of Education in Secondary Education, both from VSU.
“I love what I do and hopefully that permeates my classroom and the lives of my students,” Rogers added. “I consider it a blessing to be able to work with young people each day, and I am especially thankful that I work in a school system like Thomas County where excellence is a way of life.”
The Valdosta State University Educator Hall of Fame was established to recognize and highlight the service and accomplishments of the university’s alumni. Current Educator Hall of Fame inductees are teachers, counselors, and school leaders.
