Prichard Committee Celebrates 25th Anniversary

I suppose it was too much to hope that John Deasy would attend. I'm sure he would enjoy visiting Louisville - perhaps for the first time.

But seriously... congratulation Bob, Cindy, Bev, et. al.

National speakers to include Gates Foundation,

Education Week officials

The Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence will hold its fall meeting on Friday, October 24, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., at the Kentucky Center in Louisville. Featured speakers include:

· Vicki Phillips, Director of Education for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

· Ginny Edwards, Editor & Publisher of Education Week

The committee will also discuss its new goal for Kentucky schools to achieve a top 20 national ranking by 2020.

That goal has been set to commemorate the committee’s 25th anniversary, which will also be celebrated at a reception to be held on Thursday evening, October 23, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., also at the Kentucky Center in Louisville.

Media representatives are welcome at both events.
