If you have a child, you know the importance of education. If you live in Guilford County, you know the impact education has on the community.
One Guilford: A Leadership Symposium, sponsored by the News & Record, is an effort to connect community leaders and move past rivalries and resentments that stifle progress, as noted in a Dec. 30 editorial in the paper.On March 12, UNCG will host the latest symposium this time with a focus on education. The event will be held in the Elliott University Center auditorium, beginning at 4 p.m. Free parking is available in the Walker Avenue Parking Deck.
Questions for discussion include:
Three panels will be onstage. One will address issues from the perspective of colleges, universities and employers; one from the perspective of the school system; and one from the perspective of students, including current college students or recent graduates who came through Guilford County Schools.
UNCG will have two representatives on the panels. Dr. Rosemary Wander, associate provost for research and public/private sector partnerships, will address undergraduate research and employment needs she encounters in the business community. Megan Michaux Metzger '05 will speak from the perspective of a Guilford County Schools and UNCG graduate who went on to start her own small business, Preferred Child Care, in Greensboro.
