Choices Not Consequences”

Convening Organization

Summit Education Initiative

Event Description

Let’s come together as a community and resolve to eliminate the problem of high school dropouts. Completing a high school degree is the absolute minimum needed for a student to be on a positive career trajectory.  Ideally we want our students to graduate with a clear plan for employment, education or enlistment. The featured morning speaker will be Wes Moore, NYT best selling author of the book, The Other Wes Moore. The featured lunchtime speaker is University of Akron graduate student David Delgado.  In between our speakers the audience will be engaged in helping our community understand the dropout crisis and building a framework for community action to support our youth toward positive and productive futures.
