Alumna earns National Board Certification

Trevecca Nazarene University offers congratulations to alumna Nicki (Goforth) Dudley ’00 on earning her National Board Certification.

Dudley, a kindergarten teacher in her fifth year at First Ward Elementary School in Charlotte, N.C., has reached a goal that few achieve. Only one percent of public school teachers earn their National Board Certification. Dudley accomplished this grueling task between her wedding in summer 2005 and the anticipated birth of her first child, due any day.

Dudley is a 2000 graduate of Trevecca and also completed a masters at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2004. Dudley and husband, Jonathan, a law enforcement officer; live in Charlotte, N.C. and are expecting their first child, a daughter.
