The Distinguished Speaker Series

Since 2011, the Foundation has invited notable authors, scholars, researchers and practitioners with expertise in early-childhood issues to speak to local educators, education stakeholders, policymakers, parents and the community. The Foundation is collaborating with the Academic Distinction Fund on the speaker series, and early-education topics will alternate with topics on science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM).
