Huntsville, Ala. – March 3, 2011
The Schools Foundation community engagement initiative Speak Up: A community partnership in support of public education in Huntsville, Madison, and Madison County will hold two Community Conversations for Young Professionals. All Young Professionals are invited to participate in these community-wide conversations.
These conversations will take place on Tuesday, March 15 and on Wednesday, March 16 from 12 until 1pm at Renasant Bank, 4245 Balmoral Drive.
Speak Up, a program of The Schools Foundation, was launched last fall. Its purpose is to give individuals and organizations -- through a series of neighborhood and community conversations – the opportunity to address what they perceive to be the public schools' strengths, weaknesses, and wishes. The program’s mission is a unified plan to enhance the quality of local education developed through a shared vision, shared responsibilities, and an identification of the resources needed to guarantee the plan's success.
Young Professionals should allow one hour, start to finish. Bring a friend or co-worker and join your peers to share your vision of what our community and schools will look like in ten years. Be part of a group that looks for positive action to resolve problems.
