The Philadelphia Eagles and Nouryon, a global specialty chemicals leader, have expanded their partnership to jointly recognize exceptional middle school and secondary school teachers through the Nouryon All-Pro Teachers program.
"We have a strong partnership with the Philadelphia Eagles because each of our companies strive for excellence while helping to support the communities where our employees and customers live and work," said Nouryon Chairman and CEO Charlie Shaver. "The Nouryon All-Pro Teachers program is one way we can give back to the community while recognizing inspirational educators today and every day."
Now in its eighth year, the All-Pro Teachers program honors exceptional 5th through 12th grade teachers in the region for their commitment to education. From now through Thursday, October 27, 2022, teachers in any school district throughout the Greater Philadelphia region can be nominated by members of the community, current or former students, fellow teachers, and school administrators.

Once all nominations have been submitted, the Eagles and Nouryon will then name 10 educators as All-Pro Teachers for demonstrating outstanding educational drive, innovation in the classroom, and community ownership. They each will be recognized at an Eagles home game, with one teacher earning the prestigious honor of Nouryon All-Pro Teacher of the Year at the end of the season.
"The Nouryon All-Pro Teachers Program recognizes the commitment and impact educators have on their students in our community," said Eagles President Don Smolenski. "It is our privilege to partner with Nouryon to celebrate these teachers in the upcoming school year."
The All-Pro Teachers Program is the latest extension of Nouryon's new partnership with the Eagles. In April, Nouryon committed $300,000 to the Eagles Autism Foundation with $250,000 as a matching gift to help drive philanthropy, engage new Eagles Autism Challenge donors, and support the team's mission to advance autism research. It was the largest matching gift in the Foundation's five-year history and has ultimately contributed to a half-million dollars in new funding for cutting-edge autism research and programming.
The Eagles Autism Challenge, set for Saturday, May 21, 2022, at Lincoln Financial Field, is the team's annual bike, run, and walk event that has raised more than $12 million for the autism research community since 2018. For more information, please visit EaglesAutismChallenge.org.
