Partnering for Education Luncheon A Huge Success!
The second annual Partnering for Education luncheon took place on February 21, 2013 at the North Oaks Golf Club. More than 175 parents, business and community leaders enjoyed a presentation by Kent Pekel, President and CEO of Search Institute, a leading global innovator in discovering what children and adolescents need to succeed in their families, schools and communities. Mr Pekel's presentation focused on strategies for closing gaps that exist between young peoples' high aspirations for the future and the actions they take every day. Dan Hoverman, superintendent of Mounds View Schools, discussed the need for the school district to continue to add value to our community. The presentation also included powerful testimonials from two high school seniors.
