HARTSVILLE, S.C. – Coker College alum, Sue Rogers, has been awarded the South Carolina Association of Teacher Educators (SCATE) Student Teacher of the Year Award. The 2010 graduate is one of just two student teachers selected by the SCATE to receive this award.

“I was speechless when Dr. Susan Henderson called to inform me that I had received the SCATE Student Teacher of the Year award,” said Rogers. “I was unaware that there was an award and definitely did not know that I had been nominated.”

Rogers is no stranger to receiving recognition for outstanding accomplishments. In June of 2009, she scored a perfect 200 on the Praxis II national teacher certification exam.

“I am humbled and honored to represent Coker,” Rogers said. “My Student Teaching experience was near perfect. Coker’s Education Department prepared me with a strong foundation to embrace this opportunity with excitement and confidence.”

Rogers also said her supervising teacher at McColl Elementary and Middle School, Mrs. Blanton, was a role model for her and an example of how to be a great teacher.

“My student teaching was truly an experience of a lifetime, which I will forever treasure,” she said.

Currently, Rogers is a first grade teacher at McColl Elementary and Middle School.
