Thanks to one of our wonderful alumni parents, Jan Baskin, our 8th grade was the only middle school to ever be invited to a city summit like Connect and Propel led by Dr. David Cooperrider. Dr. Cooperrider is considered the world's leading expert on whole system change using a framework called Appreciative Inquiry.
For three days, our 8th graders interacted with around 600 leaders of all ages and experiences from the Tampa area at the Convention Center. Their speaking skills, confidence, poise and ability to comfortably interact with others received accolades by many, including our mayor. The summit was designed to create work groups of individuals from all sectors to work together to bring their hopes for Tampa's future into fruition and build a bright and exemplary future for the Tampa Bay area.
