Haycock to speak in Northern Kentucky

Online registration is under way for a communitywide education summit billed as a first-of-its-kind in Northern Kentucky.

Organizers of "Champions for Education: Focus Locally, Compete Globally" announced recently that the summit would be Nov. 14 at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center in Covington.

The first ever Northern Kentucky Education Summit, Champions for Education: Focus Locally, Compete Globally will feature key note speaker Dr. Kati Haycock. As Director of the Education Trust, Haycock champions possible solutions to the issues facing children - particularly poor and minority children.

The event will run from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Space is limited to 900 attendees. The cost is $40. Special rates for students are available.

Regional and national experts will lead workshops and deliver keynote addresses on the challenges in today's education climate.

Improving academic performance is one of the main goals of both Kentucky and Vision 2015, a group of Northern Kentucky civic leaders whose goal is to shape the region's future and see education as a key component.

Participants can register here by Nov. 7.
