Ottawa’s Chandler Bloomer will receive specially branded Go Teach items in a partnership between The Teachers College at Emporia State University at the College Football Playoff Foundation Go Teach program.
The ESU Teachers College at Emporia State is nationally recognized as a leading institution in teacher preparation in the country while the Hornet Athletic programs historically compete on the national level in NCAA Division II.
Bloomer, is a member of the baseball team and one of 53 Hornet student-athletes representing 13 of the 15 intercollegiate programs enrolled as education majors at Emporia State. The presentation of specially branded Go Teach items from the College Football Playoff Foundation will be Monday morning.
Emporia State is the first NCAA Division II school to partner with the College Football Playoff Foundation Go Teach program.
The goal of the Go Teach project is to make an immediate impact across the country by providing athletic and academic departments a platform to assist with the marketing and recruitment of student-athletes and other students into the teaching profession.
There is a current and future teacher shortage in many different teaching fields and in many communities across the country.
