Convening Education Change Agents
brought education leaders together for an evening to connect and hear inspiring messages from the 2015 Surge Fellows. 2015 Fellows LeShonne Segura (right), Melissa Connelly (left), and Khair Sadrud-Din moved the crowd with reflections and personal testimonies about their Surge Fellowship experiences.
In August, we had the honor of hosting an intimate luncheon discussion with key influencers from around the country including Allan Golston, the President of the U.S. Program for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Darryl Cobb, a Partner at Charter School Growth Fund, and Kaya Henderson, Chancellor of D.C. Public Schools. The panelists led a riveting conversation about the necessity of true community connection and more diverse education leadership to improve educational outcomes for young people.
