Woodrow Price receives Mississippi Association of Educators Member of the Year Award

Alcorn State University alumnus Woodrow Price continues to make strides in the field of education.

Price was recently awarded The Mississippi Association of Educators (MAE) Member of the Year Award Friday, March 6 at the 39th Annual Human & Civil Rights Awards Banquet at the Marriott Hotel in Jackson, Miss. The occasion was a MAE event.

The Mississippi Education Association, along with the Mississippi Teachers Association, has achieved hundreds of accomplishments for public education and the profession of teaching in Mississippi. MAE has been at the cutting edge of productive accomplishments for educators and public education in Mississippi since 1878.

Price, a Wilkinson County, Miss. native, became a member of MAE while attending Alcorn State University. He has served as a co-trainer of the local association presidents at MAE’s Summer Leadership Conference, membership chair for Claiborne County Parent Teachers Association, chair of the 5th Grade at A. W. Watson Elementary School in Port Gibson, Miss. and member of the Leadership Team.

Price, who graduated from Alcorn in 2007, was overjoyed with MAE’s recognition of his commitment to education.

“I am excited, and humbled, to have been selected as MAE’s member of the year,” said Price.

Price said the award is a testament to the amazing things that occurs in lesser known school districts. The award, according to Price, will also inspire him to accelerate into the next level of his career.

“This award will help me strive for greatness. Coming from a small district in Claiborne County, a lot of the great things that happen here often go unnoticed. This award will help shed light on some great things going on here and in other small school districts.”
