The Education Legacy Tree

A meaningful way to give thanks!

Through our Education Legacy Tree, we give folks a fantastic way to honor the mentors, teachers, coaches, and other educational leaders who have made a difference in the lives of many – including yours.


Who is that special educator who helped you flourish in school and beyond? Was it the teacher who really understood your passions and struggles? The coach who inspired you to play harder and better? Or the college mentor who helped you mature with confidence and grace? These people are at the heart of our educational system, and they deserve to be remembered in a special way.

The Education Legacy Tree is a vibrant wall sculpture that adorns the passageway that connects Cleveland Hall with the Education Addition on the Pullman campus. You can help the tree “grow” by purchasing a single or double leaf or a foundation stone embossed with an educator’s name, commemorating his or her personal investment in you. At the same time, your generosity will inspire and support future generations of teachers and leaders in the College of Education.

If possible, we will contact your honorees to let them know they’re being recognized and appreciated. Their names, and yours, will be added to our list of honorees. As more leaves and foundation stones are added over time, the Education Legacy Tree will continue to grow and inspire.
