Building Partnerships for Success 2017
As another year comes to an end I would like to send special thanks and recognition to the organizations and people who have made a positive difference in education for teachers, administrators and students.
During 2017, we were able to offer events for educators on the topics: How Prepared are Students for the World after High School—A Town Hall Meeting with Bernie Hoffman (Legal Issues)—The 4th Annual School Safety Summit—The Impact of Mental Health Issues in Schools, A Conversation about Autism and Suicide.
The events were offered at no cost to the participants. This was made possible by the support of:
Dr. Keith Dils–Dean College of Education, Slippery Rock University
Dr. Dave Layton—Associate Vice President for Enrollment, Geneva College
Mr. Scott Gregory—Counselor, Milton Hershey School
Michael and Ed Krisuk—Financial Advisors, Ameriprise, New Castle, PA
Dr. Jim Budzilek—Director of Ed. at Pitt Bull Secure Technologies, HIBster, and EDS
Dr. Mark Matta—Psychiatrist and President, Psych Med, New Castle, PA
Bryan and Kevin Clark—Owners of Clark’s Studio, New Castle, PA
Thank you for your support, you helped to make a difference for educators and their students.
A special thank you to all of my colleagues who offered advice encouragement and made suggestions. I could not have organized the events and been successful without your help.
Thank you to the hundreds of educators, board members, community members and leaders who attended. The positive feedback was greatly appreciated.
As I reflect on the events of 2017, I am strengthened in my belief that Educators are #1. They are dedicated and hard working. They are open to new ideas in an ever changing school environment. They realize how the important work they do influences their community and the world. Most importantly, they want to make a difference in a child’s life.
When everyone works together we can “Build Partnerships for Student Success”.
Happy Holidays and a Merry New Year. Happy Trails to YOU.
