Every Tuesday this October, we’re celebrating the real MVPs of economic education across Virginia – our incredible University-Based Centers! They’re the true champions when it comes to equipping K-12 teachers, school divisions, and local businesses with the knowledge and tools they need to tackle economic education.

Today, it’s time to get our game faces on!

  • Virginia Tech’s very own Dixie Dalton, the director extraordinaire, and co-director Dr. Cheryl Ayers! They’re the dynamic duo leading the charge in economic education, and they’re scoring big on and off the economics field!
  • University of Virginia College at Wise Director, Dr. Zafar Khan – A true defensive powerhouse, ensuring economic education is strong and resilient in every tackle it faces!

Let’s rally behind them and cheer for their dedication to our community’s economic literacy!

Stay tuned for more Special Teams Tuesday spotlights throughout October, as we highlight the unsung heroes of the VCEE Economic Education network!
