Catawba's prospective teachers club, the SNCAE, is open to anyone majoring or minoring in education. The regular monthly meetings are devoted to the professional and social enrichment of the members and to the advancement and refinement of the profession. SNCAE sponsors many activities and fundraisers throughout the year.
Activities have included:
Meet 'n Greet
Caveman Rock and Joust
|SNCAE Pinning Ceremony
Students admitted to Teacher Education during the junior year are pinned at a special ceremony to commemorate their official entry into the profession of teaching.
In 2006 this group collected over 395 pounds of non-perishable foods and the 2007 collection exceeded 700 pounds.
Hanging of the Greens
SNCAE President, Christine Ofslager thanks Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Ketner for their generous donation of an 18-foot artificial Christmas tree. Mr. Ketner officially lit the tree at the Hanging of the Greens Ceremony. Students are looking forward to adding more decorations for next year.
