Texas A&M-Corpus Christi to Participate in TAMU System-wide ‘Blue Light’ Initiative for World Teachers’ Day

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Blue lights will shine bright on Texas A&M University System campuses across Texas today, Monday, Oct. 5, in recognition of World Teachers’ Day. The 11 universities in the A&M System, the RELLIS Campus in Bryan, and the Texas A&M Health Sciences Center Dallas campus will illuminate a total of 30 iconic buildings and landmarks.

“We want to celebrate World Teachers’ Day in a big way all across Texas this year,” said Elaine Mendoza, Chairman of the Texas A&M System Board of Regents. “2020 has taught us all to better appreciate the importance of those who choose to spend their lives teaching others.”


“We teach Texas, and we are proud of it,” Mendoza said. “The Texas A&M University System is proud to graduate more fully-certified teachers than any public university system in Texas.”

Graduates from education colleges at Texas A&M University System campuses are highly sought-after because they are so well prepared, said Chancellor John Sharp.

“从第一天一个,我们的教师候选人与学生一起工作,并得到他们需要让他们准备好教室的工具,”校长锐说。 “我们给他们的工具,他们需要让世界变得更美好,一个孩子在一个时间。”

The theme for this year’s World Teachers’ Day is “Teachers: Leading in crisis, reimagining the future.” All 11 universities in the Texas A&M System will, via social media and other online efforts, be encouraging their communities to consider the contributions teachers have made to provide remote learning, support vulnerable populations, re-open schools and ensure learning gaps are mitigated.
