Mississippi’s World Class Teaching Programs (WCTPs) provide invaluable support, mentoring and resources to our National Board candidates.  Our WCTPs often host pinning ceremonies for their candidates who achieve certification.  The following ceremonies have been held in recent weeks or will be held in the coming weeks:


  • Delta State’s WCTP hosted its pinning ceremony on February 4.
  • Rather than hosting a pinning ceremony, Mississippi State’s WCTP has taken its celebration on the road.  They are in the process of surprising new NBCTs in their schools with flowers and balloons.  Visit the Mississippi NBCT Network's Twitter account to enjoy pictures from these fun visits! 
  • The University of Southern Mississippi’s WCTP is hosting its ceremony Monday, February 24. 
  • The University of Mississippi’s WCTP will host its pinning ceremony on Saturday, March 21.  Contact Tammie Kirkland at for additional information. 


The Mississippi NBCT Network is honored to provides $500 to each WCTP to offset expenses associated with these pinning ceremonies.
