The faculty, staff, and students of the Hanover College Education Program honors the memory of generous benefactor, Mr. Donald T. Mount, Hanover Class of 1950

In 2012, Mr. Mount gave a gift that established the Don and Fern Mount Educational Technology Wing and Model Classroom in Newby Hall for the benefit of present and future teacher candidates at Hanover College. He also endowed a need-based scholarship that gives priority to students preparing for a career in Elementary and Secondary Education. He truly was an extraordinary citizen and alumni.

Our sympathies are with his family at this time, but his ideals will live on through the gifts he so graciously shared with others, especially the future Educators of Hanover College. He will be fondly remembered.


Hanover College Education Program - where a community of teachers and learners prepare committed, competent, culturally responsive, and critically reflective new teachers. Classroom experience. Off-campus opportunities. Eye-opening challenges. Dedicated and knowledgeable faculty. All these pieces make for a teacher education program that will help you be prepared to be the teacher you want to be!

The Hanover College Education Department works in collaboration with many professionals in the field to ensure that our program completers are strong candidates for the jobs they seek. Teacher candidates from Hanover are not only specialists in their content areas, but well-prepared by their liberal arts background to be critical thinkers with excellent writing and speaking skills.
